In The World Many Good People

Poem By Francis Duggan

In the World many good people who never receive the credit to them due
But that we all have our flaws does happen to be true
It is human to have flaws it does seem this way
Though some more flawed than others is only fair to say
When i was a boy a wise woman said to me
We dislike in others in our own selves what we do see
An aging woman of wisdom her hair it was gray
The truth in her words remains with me today
You only can live as the best you can be
At least anyway this is how it seem to me
Help everyone you can in need of helping in your words never put anyone down
A trash talker will never be the toast of the town
In a World where many for success do compete
A flawless person i have yet for to meet.

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

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,

The Admirable Mo

My admiration for him it only does grow
For a braver one than he is of i may never know
A paraplegic due to a motor accident forty years ago
