‘A treasure of human traits’ Poem by 13 year old Bookosmian from Delhi
There are three cornerstones of life; love, compassion & sacrifice
They can transform one’s life in a trice,
True love and altruism is not in getting, but in giving
These mantras constitute the art of living!
When we care for someone, we sacrifice
Whether it be our precious possessions ,
Anything in front of our eyes
Whatever may be the price.
When you love someone, you learn to let them grow
For the goodwill of others, philanthropists let their possessions go!
Beauty and morality comprise a person’s character
In representing a person’s thoughts and ideals, they emerge as the X factor.
Inner beauty is the ultimate illumination of the soul
Morality adds up to their personality and ethics, as a whole
Lives of little ones are destroyed
When child labour is employed.
Child labor is a social evil concerning everyone
We should treat all child labourers as our children!
Some unfortunate children are forced to work each day
How can they support their family with such little pay.
For the betterment and education of our children, all of us pray
This problem was prevalent in Victorian England, and still persists today!
The world’s philanthropists are an exemplary example of of life skills
They help you to peek into the inner workings of yourself.
To explore the extreme world around us, they open many gates
A treasure of human traits!
