What does it mean to be a true heart
A heart that has given a heart that is smart
How much is it worth to know that somewhere
In corners of other hearts for you, they are there
A critical lesson as we move down our path
Knowing connections quiets our wrath
Relationships and people you can count on
Who’s on your team who’s quickly gone
When you make your choices always stop and ask
What are implications resulting from this task
Think of the long term not only tomorrow
Loyalty is earned not something you borrow
Surrounding us today many short-term relations
A paucity of unions built on firm foundations
Act on the connections that are deep in your heart
Thinking money power is not always smart
What you deposit in today’s bank account
May hurt in the long run when you figure out
The treasure sometimes in honoring connections
Pays back ten times more than opportunistic defections
Who’s on your core team?
What can you count on them for?
Do they know the unique place they hold?
Do you honor them with that knowledge?
Do you let them know why they have been chosen?
What is the long-term value they provide?
