The Truly Great Are Never Heroes - Poem by Francis Duggan

To help others she does go out of her way
And she performs a good deed sometimes two every day
Without seeking recognition or reward in monetary pay
Yet not everyone of her has kind things to say
Some people in their ways and thinking are small
And in acts of kindness they cannot see any goodness at all
They see it as a weakness in those who help the poor of the town
Since they themselves never help anyone who is financially down
A widowed grandmother in her mid seventies always willing to help those of helping in need
For a better Human World to live in every day she plants the seed
On kindness and compassion by good example she does lead
Yet newspaper headlines of her sort one never does read
And some of her do not have any positive things for to say
The truly great are never heroes it does seem this way.
