A little more kindness, a little less creed,

A little more giving, a little less greed,

A little more smile, a little less frown,

A little less kicking a man when he’s down,

A little more laugh, a little less cry,

A little more flowers on the pathway of life,

And fewer on graves at the end of the strife. ~ Anonymous
