The Person That You Really Are - Poem by Francis Duggan

You may never have been a hero in war
Or you may only be driving a cheap second hand car
Or never be revered as an elite sports person in places afar
But feel proud of the person that you really are
You support love and care for your partner and family
Success can be relative would you not agree
You have never wronged anyone in any sort of a way
And you work very hard for your every take home pay
And though you will never be one of the admired even on your side of the town
In your words you never put anyone down
For your future good karma you do plant the seed
And of many more of your sort the human World is in need
On the material success ladder you may not have climbed far
But this does not tell us of the person that you really are.
