Essence of the Human Spirit


A small cat, hungry and afraid

Away from home it had strayed

On seeing the kitten, it was fed

What wonders, pieces of bread.

As a baby bird fell from its nest

A little boy behaved at his best

Saved the feathered one at last

Placing it in its nest just as fast

The fireman saved this little pup

Giving it some water from his cup

Fed it his doughnut, for a snack,

The dog barked, to give love back.

A boy next door saw leaves swept

Cut the old man's grass, well kept

Refused any money, for it was rare

Just in wanting to show he did care

The mailman saw a toddler leave,

Caught the babe by its tiny sleeve

Saving it from a most terrible slip

One good deed done on every trip

A man fed many with fish and bread

Near the seashore, a scripture read

Greater miracles performed each day

Prepared a life for us all in every way

Awesome job with the subject matter. This poem shares hope for humanity and hopefully many more will take the same kind of action this poem suggests. Great work.

Really cool. I am learning to see more good than bad. Sorry but most people do not like it.
