Generosity


Open those tight fists
Do not hold back
Make your palms transparent
Release that dime
Be a blessing
Wipe tears away
That little drop
Is what someone desires
Be an answer to someone's prayer
Be an instrument of succour
Sow that seed impartially
Don't delay, cease the moment
Be an angel to that poor soul
Remember, whatsoever you sow
Shall return to you in folds
