No greater joy or feeling of peace
Serving another provides release
Moving you from thoughts of yourself
Awakening compassion for someone else
For mothers and infants this place is a given
For hospice workers how they make their living
When you let go of all that you need
You forget for a while about your own greed
Stand in the shoes of another who’s down
Take care of their concerns without any frown
Let compassion well up becoming your driver
Feeling alive you’re a new kind of striver
A quiet takes over as your priority
You don’t even think you just do and be
Some get the lesson at an early age
Some spend their life allowing their rage
A simple truth here on this earth
Service quickens aliveness and your rebirth
Don’t sit around focused on self
Look at your circle seek who needs help
How much of your day are you focused on your needs?
How much of the day are you focused on others and their needs?
What do you think about your responses?
Do you want to make some changes?
