“My Creed I would be true, for there are those who trust me; I would be pure, for there are those who care; I would be strong, for there is much to suffer; I would be brave, for there is much to dare. I would be friend of all- the foe, the friendless; I would be giving, and forget the gift. I would be humble, for I know my weakness; I would look up- and laugh- and love- and lift. ”

A great writer once said that, whenever art speaks the truth, it is always repeating what great art has said before. Sentiments like the ones in this poem are as simple and unadorned as bread and water. In other words, the necessities of life.
