A Chance to Help

From The Birmingham Age Herald, August 1, 1914.

This life is full of ups and downs
    That fill us with dismay;
For one whom fickle fortune crowns
    A thousand pass away
Unhonored and unsung, without
    Regard for years of toil
They spend amid the rabble rout,
    In heartache and turmoil.

And yet, despite these odds so great,
    We know this much is so;
A man, no matter what his fate,
    If high, forsooth, or low,
Can make some other mortal glad
    And shed a ray of cheer,
And prove this world is not so bad
    As often doth appear.
