Life's Purpose - Poem by Dr John Celes

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!
