You can lead a horse to water,
But you cannot make it drink.
Another’s thoughts and actions
Are more habitual than you think.

It’s not your place to say
What other’s think and do.
So worry not when how they act
Does not agree with you.

Each one is on his own sure path.
Each grows at his own pace.
And with perfect timing
His own lessons will he face.

So worry not of others.
Try not to keep control.
It’s only you who needs to grow
As you develop your own soul.

If this thought does bring you trouble,
If you think all others need grow, too,
Then you’ve lost focus of the lesson
That there’s only One of you.
