The Negative Few - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may be a kind and caring person to humanity what's known as a god send
And to everyone you'd like to be a friend
For to help others out you go out of your way
One who does at least one good deed every day.

Yet not everyone respect to you will pay
And of you some even unkind things will say
Such people who find pleasure in words on putting others down
Their kind in every city and village and town.

Yet your attitude to life and to others to great things amount
And those who criticize you their opinions don't count
Show some a flowering garden only weeds they will see
Negativity is a kin of ignorance would you not agree.

Your equal as a person would be hard to find
And the Human World is in need of more of your kind
Though you do not escape the put down words of the negative few
One might say of that tell us something that's new.
