Doing The Greater Good

There’s always other things to do;
things more important than the arduous act,
and there’s always greater priorities
that take precedence even over that.
But in this day and age of indifference
with more pressing engagements of should.
Nice to know there are still people out there
doing the greater good.

Here, there, and everywhere;
they’re out there in simple force,
offering services and helping others
with their needs, without remorse.
Like you, they have their things to do,
what’s important, what’s understood,
yet they choose to make time and follow their heart
doing the greater good.

Random acts of kindness, giving unselfishly of their time.
Not so hung up on menial rewards or meeting the bottom line.
Hoping that their selfless actions of laboring to easy another’s strife
might lighten another’s burdens, might effect a change in their life.

There will always be someone out there
with that inconvenient, needful call,
and no matter who or what you are
there’s no way you can do it all.
But maybe this one day; this one time
you might lend a hand when you could,
and join the benevolent folks out there
doing the greater good.
