Wreckers Or Builders

Wreckers Or Builders By Carmelo Bevenga

I watched them tearing a building down, A gang of men in a busy town.

With a ho-heave-ho and lusty yell, They swung a beam and a sidewall fell.

I asked the foreman, “Are these men skilled, As the men you’d hire if you had to build?”

He gave me a laugh and said, “No indeed! Just common labor is all I need.

I can easily wreck in a day or two What builders have taken a year to do.” And I tho’t to myself as I went my way, Which of these two roles have I tried to play?

Am I a builder who works with care, Measuring life by the rule and square? Am I shaping my deeds by a well-made plan, Patiently doing the best I can? Or am I a wrecker who walks the town, Content with the labor of tearing down?

Point To Note: It is essential to assess (at intervals) the ratio of your contributions to censures either at work or home because that is the best indicator of a good team player.
