This poem is also on my Facebook notes, but for anyone who doesn`t read those past the four lines here it is:
 
 
                                             The Things That Count
 
     Not what we have, but what we use;
     Not what we see, but what we choose-
     These are the things that mar or bless
     The sum of human happiness.
     The things nearby, not things afar;
     Not what we seem, but what we are-
     These are the things that make or break
     That give our heart its joy or ache.
     Not what seems fair, but what is true;
     Not what we dream, but what we do-
     These are the things that shine like gems
     Like stars, in Fortunes`s diadems.
     Not what we take, but what we give;
     Not as we pray, but how we live-
     These are the things that make for peace
     Both now and after time shall cease.
