Special

Poem : Mother Teresa

Sep 1, 2016

 

 

I don’t even know where to start

Her soul was silver and gold was her heart

Yes she was so generous

She’s a gift from above

The Holy Spirit flew into her- just like a dove

Touching the sick, the lepers

With no fear at all

Because she was chosen

She did get a call

She saved lives and many she healed

Even though she was sick, she made sure it was concealed

Simple, with just a sari, blue and white

Just like mother Mary, she shone the light

Her message to the world is to help the poor

If not guide them in, at least open the door

Have some compassion, mercy

Be mindful of those who have less

Never curse anyone’s name

Just simply bless

Most importantly, never forget your humanity

Because that’s something we all have got

Think of Mother Teresa, who sacrificed her whole life and helped a lot

She was humble, she was hospitable, she was very kind

She’d even look for one lost sheep, leaving 99 behind

August 26th is this missionary’s holy birthday

Spare her one thought even if you have nothing to say

We should never forget her works, because not at all was it faint

That’s why on September the 4th she’s becoming a saint

These 2 months are special – August and September

But on all the other months of the year, I will still remember,

Remember her works, her nobility and her great deeds

On this land, I hope there are no weeds

I hope we’re sown in good soil like Mother Teresa

Because after all we’re the seeds.

    True to the Mother, the poem has taken her shape, and even the beginning of the poem is like her achievement, you are at a loss as to where to start from. the rhyme scheme is good, and rhythm is the most popular one. Well summarized a noble work.
