True Joy of Life

This is the true joy of life.
The being used for a purpose
Recognized by yourself as a mighty one.
The being a force of nature
Instead of a feverish, selfish
Little clod of ailments and grievances
Complaining that the orld ill not
!evote itself to ma"ing you happy.
I am of the opinion that my life
#elongs to the hole community
$nd as long as I live,
It is my privilege to do for it
%hatever I can.
I ant to be thoroughly
&sed up hen I die,
'or the harder I or" the more I live.
I rejoice in life for its on sa"e.
Life is no brief candle to me.
It is a sort of splendid torch
%hich I(ve got hold of
'or the moment
$nd I ant to ma"e it burn
$s brightly as possible before
)andling it on to future generations
