Be Grateful

Be grateful and be helpful.
Be grateful if not helpful.
Being ungrateful is bad.
Be helpful to one even
One is not grateful to you.
Only such acts make you great.
I am great as I follow this
With my stubborn lady love.

A perspective that is both powerful and practical!
well composed and a nice advice for all.
Verily, being grateful and helpful are the qualities required to remain as a human being.
be helpful - that is the value forgotten by many and by me myself often also! Thank you very much for reminding!
Gratefulness is a positive quality and making a poem on this is so good and it felt beautiful.
