There Are None Of Us - Poem by Francis Duggan

There are none of us quite perfect none of us quite free of sin
But by becoming a better person you make the World better to live in
By your actions or by your words never drag anyone down
By living as a better person you become an asset to your town
Though many out for their own glory for themselves to make a name
There is more to our existence than living for self, wealth and fame
Those who care for other people help those of helping in need
For their future good karma they are planting the good seed
Without the selfish and greedy the World would be better indeed
And sadly as ever they are not a rare breed
To make the World better to live in would you not agree
It is up to everyone and everyone includes you and me
By making ourselves better people we do begin
To make the human World better to live in.

    Great thinking. No one else but you are responsible for all that you face. One reaps only what one plants. Very philosophical indeed. Thanks for sharing. (Report)Reply
