What is and is not my BUSINESS?
The distinction I must make,
One is a positive to pay attention to,
The other…..my TIME it does take.
Minding my OWN business is what I must do,
Staying focused on my tasks at hand,
When switching to others and what they are doing,
Then only BUSI…NESS is what I command.
Being BUSY is not always positive,
When to others I’m directing my actions,
Minding my BUSINESS….improving my life,
Running others is just a distraction.
For I can rob them of success they would feel,
When they’ve accomplished a deed they’ve completed,
If I rush in and do it…..or tell them the way,
They feel incapable……and then are defeated.
In my attempt to help……I really am hurting,
I must mind my own BUSINESS and so,
Knowing the DIFFERENCE between my BUSINESS and BUSI–NESS
Allows others and me, the dignity to grow.
