Support, Love, and Contribute

A perspective of the past, present, and future in a poem.

By Alexis from Burke High School in Nebraska

Support the past

Love the present

Contribute to the future

Support the ones you love

Be conscious of the ones above

Died for the ones you love

It takes time here's a shove

Love the time to depend

Warmth of a helping hand

One day, peace will end 

But something new will begin

Contribute to new things

Wonder what other bring

Join the voices who sing 

To hear those sleigh bells ring

Support will encourage 

Love off a page 

To Contribute and make a change
