Let me tell you a story

 About a man who sought glory

He was a man who lacked worries

Had dreams that could fill several lorries

He was cheerful and shunned greed

An ardent believer of humanistic creed

He helped others run while he crept

Some of them flew, while he leaped

But in all, he wished them well 

If they got great, he would feel swell

 For to him, that’s what it means to be great

To help others face and beat life’s baits.

  4. That’s what we are all here for, to help each other fly; that way there’ll be no one left on the ground. Too bad no one remembered to help this man reach the sky.
