Life's Purpose


Life is for giving, not taking;
Life is for making, not faking;
Life is for sharing, not stacking;
Life is to see our brethren, smile and laugh.

Life is for setting an example glowing, not pretending;
Life is for interpreting rightly, not in misinterpreting;
Life is for helping others, not asking for aid;
Life is to bring cheer onto the poor and common man’s face!

Life is for doing good, not expecting;
Life is for emulating, not acting;
Life is for leading, not misleading;
Life is to make the world, a better place for all to live!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
