Life to You

The more you live to love and give, the better off you'll be
Instead of living more to take and "What's in it for me."

Though looking out for number one may guarantee survival
Looking out for others is what makes it all worth while.

This kind of heart brings life to you and everyone you touch
Instead of bringing stuff to you with sorrows overmuch.

Self-centered living has a way of piercing one's heart through
While generosity and love bring blessings back to you.

Don't let this world suck you in to its mindless rush and stress
Live free and large and always give with joyful thankfulness.

Be a doer and you'll find true riches are in store
Enjoy them in the here and now and then forevermore.
