happiness in deeds

i look around myself

and im startled at what i see

millions of other people

who love and live like me


we may be different some

on surface or beneath

but all together people

are the same and share some grief


i want to help my friends

fam'ly and my town

and also everyone

from cities up and down

the country that i live in

for anyone can see

that helping those in need

is happiness indeed
