Of Life It Is Said - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of life it is said we must give to receive
On such a philosophy i am one who believe
Kindness can beget kindness happens to be true
If you are kind to others good things may be your due
There is more to living of life than living for me, myself and i
Those who will tell you differently believe their own lie
You may be admired by many as a multi money millionaire
But if you do not love yourself with others you cannot share
To lead a good life a healthy sense of self love one does need
It is a proven antidote to greed
Despite your great material wealth why otherwise pretend
That you are one on others who does not need to depend
Since we are all co dependent it seems true to say
Humanity it does work in this way.
