It's Up To You! - Poem by Denis Martindale

If you are noble you are blessed
Each time you try to do your best!
Success or failure, who can say?
For both will come to you one day...

For now, before your fate is known,
It's wise if guidance can be shown.
Today's not just the hours sent
For there's a greater honour meant.

The good you do this day will grow
In ways that none on Earth can know.
Good works abound where faith is found
Helping those in pain that frowned.

Why only help the folks that smile?
Avoid the ones who live in style!
Seek out the people frail and poor,
They need your help and that's for sure!

If you are noble, kind and true,
Please help them out... It's up to you!
