True Charity

I gave a beggar from my little store
Of well-earned gold. He spent the shining ore
And came again, and yet again, still cold
And hungry, as before.

I gave a thought, and through that thought of mine
He found himself, the man, supreme, divine!
Fed, clothed, and crowned with blessings manifold.
And now he begs no more.

This helped me a lot
I gave a thought, and through that thought of mine He found himself, the man, supreme, divine! It is actually the most valuable donation ever to make someone reach one's humanity, ability, power.......
