From My Window - Poem by Raymond Farrell

From my 4th floor window
As night settles
I look across
The paved lane way
At the Basic Medical Sciences building
The offices and labs remain lit
Though it is now past 8 p.m.
There they sit
Trying to put together
Bits and pieces of data
Derived from their research
And here I sit
Trying to do the same
Those I know
That work in that building
Like I
Are driven
By a desire
To help their fellow man
And somehow
I hope
The bits and pieces
Of this great jig saw puzzle
We are all working on
Fit together
In such a way
Someone, somewhere
Benefits
This goal
Alone
Drives me forward.

    Verily, working for the benefit of mankind is really a virtue in itself
    If unsuccessful in the achievement,
    The reward of eternity is already won
