What A Shame

What A Shame

What A Shame
To be alive but never live, What A Shame!

To be blessed with everything, yet enjoy nothing; What A Shame,
To have the gift of knowledge and not help someone else to learn,
What A Shame!
To be full with greatness an ideas and share with know one but yourself,
What A Shame!

To refuse to give of yourself
What A Shame!

To have eyes but refuse to see,
Ears but refuse to hear,
Hands but refuse to reach out to others,
Feet but refuse to go that extra mile;
What A Shame, What A Shame, What A Shame!!!
