The Measure of a Man

1. Inside Champions/
A magnified reflection/
Of human spirit/
#haiku

2. True champions win/
Each and ev’ry day they try/
To complete their tasks/
#haiku

3. The external race/
Is for mere humanity/
Real champs win within/
#haiku

4. Public accolades/
Are the mere recognition/
Of the outside world/
#haiku

5a. The “world’s accolades”/
Like children’s shiny trinkets/
Lack moral value/
#haiku

5b.The “world’s accolades”/
Like children’s shiny trinkets/
Lack any real worth/
#haiku

5c. The “world’s accolades”/
Like children’s shiny trinkets/
Mean nothing to G_d/
#haiku
