Joys of Charity: A poem by Ate Mamu

To give without counting how much
To give without expecting anything
It is not a duty nor responsibility
But an act of unselfish loving. 

Giving is not seeing whether poor or wealthy
But sharing favor to anyone who needs
It is not counting by how much and how many
But how much love we create while giving. 

Giving is a way of expressing kindness
Not just by money and honey. 
A gesture that includes time and effort
That gives smile and joy to the giver and needy. 

For it is not the things that make people happy
But the love and peace we give and receive
It is the joy of charity that gives sparkle to the eyes 
It is the love we share that makes the world go round.
