Paul Sebastian


Give To Receive


Give kindness, if you want kindness shown
Give respect, if you are to receive your own
Give love, if you want to be loved
Give care, if you want to be cared
Give friendship, if you want friends
Give time, theirs they willingly lend
You must give first, to receive
Life compensates, if you give

Giving is not for some manipulation
To use others for some selfish reasons
To love needs and things, by using people
In giving expect nothing: love's principle

Give negative, negativity you beget,
Respond positively, positivity you get
Life rewards those who give
For it is in giving you receive!
