There Is More To Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

There is more to life than money and fame
Though to many these two important just the same
Since some money to live on most people do need
And fame to many seems important indeed
But money and fame as a person does not say as much of you
As your kindness and compassion and empathy for others do
The fact is money is quite important and fact does not lie
There is more to life than the me, myself and i
For to receive good Karma in life you must sow the seed
And be willing to help those of your helping in need
Those who for to help others go out of their way
Their actions say more of them than words can say
And though they are quite important money and fame
There is more to life so much more one could name.
