Try to be

Try to be
by Joel Howard

It's easy to pour out
Not so to fill up
It's easy to give away
Not as easy to earn
It's easy to extend forward
Not as easy to rest
It's easy to do 
Not as easy to be

It's easy to share
not so to keep
It's easy to rejoice
not to weep
Its easier to live
than to die
We'd rather not bow
but climb

It's much more blessed to give
than receive
Receiving requires me
on my knees
Giving allows me to
Its more blessed to give
than receive

Its easier to slap on a 
Than to sit with the problem
day after day
Its easier to run away
Not as easy for me
to be
