A Credit To Humanity


The stories of their lives are so good to read
Those unselfish people who helps those in need
From their Homeland they travel far away
For love of helping the less fortunate without any pay
For their altruistic ways respect and recognition they are due
To their higher selves such people always true
Known for their compassion and their empathy
These people a credit to humanity
At home and in drought ravaged lands overseas
They help the Homeless and the hungy and the Stateless refugees
For humanity's cause they put self ambition aside
True greatness of them never should be denied
In the helping of the less fortunate their time they devote
And in words I would laud them if I were a poet.
