One who puts the needs
of others above their own,

Who rises above their situation
to benefit and assist

Who does not pass on their pain
to others in their lives,
Who does not think they

are more special or deserving
than anyone else,

Who is selfless with time
and other resources,

Who will do more than asked
maybe even
without being asked,

Who is kind even when
no one knows,

And doesn’t even notice.
