A and B
come upon a glass.
"Hey," shouts A, "It's half-full!"
"Huh," snorts B "It's half-empty!"
Who will quench his thirst?
For the needy every drop is a tonic and
what seems half-full is but an all-full.
For the fussy even an ocean is a pool and
what seems half-empty is but all-empty.
It matters not half or full.
It matters to accept what is given most.
So take it or leave it
and become a ' have ' or a ' have-not '.
What is required and what is desired
cannot always be the same.
(From Poems On Life)
