 Life Is Just A Minute
   Life is just a minute—only sixty seconds in it.
  Forced upon you—can't refuse it.
  Didn't seek it—didn't choose it.
  But it's up to you to use it.
  You must suffer if you lose it.
  Give an account if you abuse it.
  Just a tiny, little minute,
  But eternity is in it!

  By Dr. Benjamin Elijah Mays, Former President of Morehouse College
