No greater joy feeling of peace

Serving another provides release

Moving you from thoughts of self

Compassion for somebody else


For mothers and infants this is a given

Hospice folks how they make their livin

Letting go of all they need

Forgetting all personal greed


Stand in shoes of a friend who’s down

Care for their concerns without a frown

Let compassion become your driver

Alive in you a new striver


Quiet reverie your priority

Don’t even think just do and be

Some get the lesson early age

Some live life allowing rage


Simple truth here on earth

Service quickens a rebirth

Don’t sit around focused on yourself

Look at your circle 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?
