I touch the light,
What a joy to feel so high
Yet, gliding above,
My darkest fears,
I still hear the others cry
It is only when,
I feel their pain,
I shed my wings of gold
Somehow I find a greater peace,

Standing with them in the cold

A poet's good heart Is never alone For he feels So much for others Even when, They're not His own Good poet, Good soul. May those who read this poem realize that it is better to help than to do harm, even if with less wealth their bitter lives, they do arm. A truly beautiful poetic gem! And, lesson in human feeling.
