To that kid at the traffic signal, give a coloring book

To that colleague having a bad day, give a smile

To that problem you have in life, give thought

To the house/office help, give a day off
To the stray outside your house, give a packet of biscuits
To your long-lost friend, give a hug

To someone who has had a loss, give warmth
To someone who has cheated on you, for-give
To someone who is grieving or struggling, give time

To someone who is facing a tough time, give a pat.

Give not to receive,
Give, not because you can,

Give, not for them/others,

Give, not out a favor,
But to give yourself hope.

Give not because someone is under or over,
giving doesn’t discriminate,

its is a privilege in itself,
a privilege to be more human
a giving one.

Do yourself a favor, give.
