Denouement with Dignity

So true it is; it is good to have work

and of great joy to work with dignity.

It does not matter what the lived task is –

it matters only how the job is done.

I am so very grateful to have work.

Yes, it makes me happy to be complete.

The appointed task fulfills my being,

getting the job done truly satisfies.

I have been hard at work for fifty years –

an educator – thousands have been led out,

helping others to realize self-esteem,

and the achievement of career goals.

Coming to my personal denouement…

I am graced by honoring self-esteem,

completed by commending career goals

I can now retire with dignity.

The future is full of possibility,

to continue to continue anew…

by living simply and simply leaving,

sharing love with peace and mercy.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
