A Poem for Dignity and Pride

Dignity and Pride two little words we say,

Yet we each and every one of us,

Expect to find them,

Every single day,

Some times when you are feeling low,

With little self esteem,

Those two words can be very elusive,

You all know what I mean,

When you help me through the day,

And In my hour of need,

If we work closely as a team,

I am sure we will succeed,

When you help me through my day,

As we work side by side,

With your friendly help and caring smile,

You can help me keep my dignity and pride,

So when you're helping others,

As we do from day to day,

Always be supportive,

With the things you do and say,

From all our tasks with service users,

Working side by side,

Always keep in mind,

Their dignity and pride.
