There is an appointed place for you to be,
a position that suits your personality.
There is an office calling on you to man,
a staff waiting for your plan.
There is a homeless child with nowhere to go,
except a home to him you’ll show.
There is a poor youth uncertain of the future,
And this you can help him nurture.
There is a boy in your class with poor grades,
others avoid him as if he has AIDS.
There is no better time to help this lad,
a gesture he’ll not easily discard.
There is a soul out there you need to win,
and rescue from the clutch of sin.
There is a message you need to preach,
that’ll prevent someone from entering a ditch.
There is an incentive you need to give,
to spur others to greatly achieve.
There is a speech you have to make,
to help one avoid a mistake.
There is an apology letter you have to write,
if you have gotten into a fight.
There is an ‘I’m sorry’ you have to say,
if you have wronged someone today.
There is a smile you should have on your face,
That those around will be happy always.
There is a positive attitude you need to have,
that your relationship with others will thrive.
There are a million things you can do,
to help millions of people, or few.
There is a reward for selfless service,
But only a few know this!
