not all of us
are given a
second chance--we
only go 'round
this old world once

you've been given
only one life
when your number's
called--that's it--no
more lifelines left

right all wrongs
forgive others
stop the hate
undo damage done
lend a hand
feed the homeless
visit the sick
thank a veteran
hug a hero
be a friend
dry some tears
comfort a child

when you read these
words, bring joy to
someone's life--just
forget yourself
be a blessing

give freely--share
the wealth--be a
blessing because
you've been given
a second chance
