Joy of Giving

Try giving food,
To a hungry soul;
Try giving a pen,
To a poet who lost his pen;
Try giving water,
To quench someones thirst;

Try giving a holy book,
To a man who has lost all hope;
Try giving clothes,
To one who needs them;
Try helping a blind man,
Cross the road;

Try teaching an illiterate,
To count 1,2,3;
Try opening the door,
For someone who cannot;
Try spreading joy,
When it is least expected;

Try it and you will realize,
That true joy lies in giving and not receiving.

– S.R.
