In the Giving

It's in the contribution, it's
Doing the best you can,
It's being part of the time
You are given, its
Being a component of the wider
World in which you are born.
It's being at full flowering
In due time, in finding the thing
You can do and do well, it's
Being a fine human being in
Treating every person like your own.
It's in the giving of the self to
Both God and Man, it's
Discerning your role in the
Grand Plan - it's
Living your life wheel as
It should and as it can.
