The best way to give

Is to give something you love,
That you actually like,
Something you would have loved
To receive yourself.
It helps you to remember
That things are just things
But people are precious
And are to be treasured
More than our treasures.
People have becomed used to being used
In the pursuit of a bottom line
And possessions are held
In highest esteem-
In such a world,
Practicing giving away
Things we actually value
Is a wortwhile exercise
For keeping our hearts trained
On using our belongings
And loving our people.
