There Is Luxury In Giving

There is luxury in giving
Money, wisdom or even organs
Generosity stems from selfishness
You may argue otherwise
The generous seldom give
For the sole sake of giving
But for praise, recognition and glory
Some boast outwardly, most inwardly
To give is natural just like it is to take
The giver is not superior, nor is he great
Givers and takers are simply part
Of the elaborate network of lives
Intricately embedded and carefully placed
You can give only what you have
And so there is luxury in giving
