James In His Early Twenties

James in his early twenties is a far better man than me
He has eyes for beauty and beauty he only see
Kind and compassionate to help others he goes out of his way
And unkind things of anyone he never does say
One can say of James a great person indeed
And of more people like he is the Human World is in need
But he never will know of local renown
And be admired as a hero of the town
Since he is not into sport and football never will play
He will never be the hero of Grand Final day
But one can say of him he has the inner glow
And to me one like him is a pleasure to know
One can only admire him for his compassion and empathy
Young James is a far better person than me.
