Facing the Divine,
Recall everything you have done:
Does it put your mind in ease
After you fight and win a hard case?
Does it make you a better being
When you choose to find happiness by getting even?
Does it fit the Goodness’ name
When you earn money and fame
By opting to accuse, hurt, or blame?
I don’t think So!
You can keep rumors from spreading?
Or stop the stock-market from falling?
By being wise, nice, and loving!
You can choose to give instead of receive or gain
And build close bonds with those in pain
By helping, healing, and
Handing them the prizes you win!
It is a matter of attitude,
It has little to do with your aptitude.
No one shall live in vain, together, after
Passing the year of 2009,
We will try as best as we can
Not to live in vain
Please fill in the blank by sharing something you have done in helping others. Thank you!
