A rhyming poem about making one's life meaningful.
We each get but one life to live.
We’re born with so much to give.
Our life done well can inspire others.
We all can be good fathers or mothers.
We can make the world a better place
by living with compassion and grace.
Don’t be one who merely takes up space,
one who dies without leaving a trace.
Live to do good works, to improve society
without seeking reward, fame, or notoriety.
Display selflessness toward all in good amount.
You will live only once. Make it count!
