Make a sum instead

by Lawrence J. J. Leonard

Make an impact
Make a friendship
Make a frown turn upside down

Make a sum
by adding together

 your caring with someone’s need

Make a commitment to excellence
Make a persuasive argument
Make an inspiring speech

Make a sum
by adding together
your elbow grease to assist a neighbor

Make time to volunteer
Make yourself count to ten
Make it a priority to be mannerly

Make a sum
by adding together
your investment with a charity of choice

It is mathematically impossible to make a sum
by making a difference.
Two negatives don’t make a positive.

Instead, make a sum in your lifetime.

Make an effort to pay it forward
Make a positive change in the way you eat
Make time to walk

Make a sum
by adding together
your understanding of another’s feelings

Make the sacrifice and listen first
Make a group and include the forgotten
Make time to pray

Make a sum
by adding together
your hurt with someone’s empathy

Make the trip you always talked about
Make me proud of how honest you are
Make time to read a printed book
