Give a man a helping hand and he must open his fist.
Give a man a hug and he must open his grip.
Give a man kindness
To deter him from violence.
Give a man a meal,
He won’t need to steal.
Give a man shelter,
He won’t break and enter.
Give a man recovery,
Drugs become a memory.
Give a man wisdom,
He can stay out of prison.
Give a man an example of what love is,
Change the world every time that you GIVE.
