Make A Difference

Make A Difference short poem

Photo by Esther Gibbons

So many dreams we have as we grow.
As we hear the horns of our life begin to blow.
Have we run out of time?
Can we do something and shine?

We live in a world where everyone rushes through.
Moms and Dads always busy and never having time for you.
Many things can be accomplished today.
Through Christ that makes the way.

Take time out to pray for a friend.
Listening to them talk can help them mend.
Tell someone you know life can be tough.
Then teach them about God’s gentle love.

Take time out to play with a child.
Give them a reason to smile.
We can make a difference in many ways.
Take time out to do it today.

Then when the horns of your life begin to blow.
The many things you have done will begin to show.
Everyone will know how you chose to share your soul.
Many dreams can come true.
It depends on what you choose to do.
