One Percent

 
Can you imagine if we all gave away one percent
Of time, of wages, of kindness, how far could that go?
Would those with more to give make a big difference?
Or would the masses make the movement grow?

Can you imagine if you donated one percent of a week?
That is one hour and forty-one minutes of your time
Whether itd be feeding the homeless or serving the elderly
Would the little things in our community help deter crime?

Can you imagine if everyone who has enough helped out
Provided assistance in whatever their field of expertise
Perhaps if kindness and love were spread throughout the year
Would societies come to true fulfillment of humanity and peace

May be like Lennon many of us are dreamers of a better world
Where those with something to give can spare and make a dent
Perhaps then the teachings of the enlightened ones will come true
If each and every one of us cared and gave at least one percent
