Life Is Our Gift

Poem By MELVIN BANGGOLLAY

Life is our gift from the God of love
Who made us a symbol of his love
that by the grace of his endless love
he gave us a breath for us to love
With all wisdom we need with love.

Let us then care this life we received
With all our heart when we believed
That this is our gift we never perceived
from our heavenly God who never leave
when we're not really worthy to receive.

Don't ever take life by our own hands
Even if it's right to dip our spoon in a pan
When we desire justice to take its plan
For only God has the right to let it done
For he is the one who gave our hands.

Taking away our own breath is insanity
For we have no right to do such duty
Of the one who gave life to all humanity
Even if we feel its the only way to be free
From sorrow and pain from life's malady.

Great poem! This is my favorite section: Don't ever take life by our own hands Even if it's right to dip our spoon in a pan When we desire justice to take its plan For only God has the right to let it done For he is the one who gave our hands.
