The Learning Tree

It's a matter of givin' more to this world than you take away from it. 
So when you die you don't owe it anything. 
It's bein' able to love when you want to hate-
to forgive them that work against you-
to tell the truth even when it hurts-
to share your bread no matter how hungry you are yourself.
Dyin' comes easy when you know you've done all these things right.
The Learning Tree
