September 5, 2008 marked the tenth death anniversary of Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu. She is better known as Mother Teresa. Almost everyone would have heard of her and the organisation that she founded, the Missionaries of Charity.
Mother Teresa . . .
She dedicated her life for the cause of the poor, the sick, the orphaned, the neglected, the abandoned, the destitute and the dying. She gave hope to the hopeless, love to the abandoned, solace to the wretched and dignity to the dying.
Humans may come and humans may go,
But she said, “No!”
To those who asked her:
“Why do you bother?”
She was the last hope,
For those who could not cope.
She was the only source of light,
For those who had given up the fight.
She knew no fate,
For she did not hate.
Blessed indeed are those,
Who walked the path they chose.
She is not dead,
For it was humanity that she lead.
She still visits those with no hope,
For she is the Saint of Hope!
