Why bother?

in consideration of
what won't be created, written
or healed

where we will work, play
and give

who won't be fed, sheltered, 
or freed

who won't be loved

what won't happen
if we don't 

unless we are at least a bit
bothered today

    1. Shanyu,
      That my words inspired your thoughts is the most wonderful feeling. I write to give and my hope is to open new doors for my readers. Thank you for spending time with this poem today.


      1. It is my absolute pleasure Ali. Your words have meant a lot for me ever since I read you poetry the first time. I have a lot of catching up to do, but I am really humbled by your poetry still. Thank you so much for that. Have a fantastic day.


    1. Helen,
      It touches my heart to hear that my poem touched your heart. Each action makes a change in the world. Beautiful things are happening alongside the difficult ones.
      Wishing you a beautiful day.
