He Is A Great Person Indeed

In this Human World we live in where success is born of greed
It is not the self serving types of which we are in need
We have too many of their sort already far too many it does seem
People who nurture their egos and only seek their own esteem
What we do need are more people who have in them empathy
Who for the suffering of others can feel genuine sympathy
People in touch with their higher selves who have love in them to share
For those less fortunate than themselves they always seem to care
People like them never selfish always sowing Karma's good seed
The World better for them living in it and of more of their kind we are in need
Leave it to the impressionable masses the praises of the wealthy greedy one to sing
It is said in the Land of the Blind that the one eyed man is King
But the one who comes to the assistance of the one of helping in need
May not have many admirers but is a great person indeed.
