A Hero Of Mine

Poem By Francis Duggan

Your Greatest achievement to some may seem small
But what is a great to many does not apply to all
On what constitutes success no two feel the same
Since not everyone see an achievement in being a celebrity and being one of wealth and fame
For to help other people you often go out of your way
And you perform a good deed or two every day
For your future good karma you are planting the seed
Of more people like you are the Human World is in need
It is not what you do for yourself but what for others you do
Since your good deeds and your kindness say more about you
Between people you never differentiate in any way
And unkind things of others you never does say
With royalty and celebrities you never may dine
But you happen for to be a hero of mine.

A Beautiful Person With A Heart Of Gold

She sees things of beauty in all that she see
And what's beautiful to her seems ugly to me

The Sound Of Laughter

The sound of laughter is a thing of beauty for laughter spreads the very gift of joy
That people they are drawn to happy people is not that hard for to understand why
Since everybody wishes to be happy and laughter it spreads happiness around
And only the heartless could not like the sound of laughter for laughter is a very happy sound,

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
