On The Journey Of Life

On the journey of life until the day we does die
There is more to the living of life than for the me, myself and I
Though sad for to say it is nothing new
That those who live for the self are not of the few
Yes those who of their own needs are only aware
Now as of ever are not of the rare
They only know how to receive but not on how to give
It is for the self only that they do live
Lacking in kindness, compassion and in empathy
They believe they were born for to live for the me
Those who are always willing to help those of helping in need
For their future good karma are planting the seed
Though as news headline makers never to the fore
Of their sort of people humanity is in need of more.
