In Service

I found happiness in helping others

This bitter world

Is filled with doubt and hate

Fear and entitlement

Heads on a swivel not knowing where the next threat will come from

I kept everyone at two arm lengths away

What changed

I hit rock bottom

Only from here can you see what’s truly wrong

Our times wasted by those who want attention

While those who need our help go unnoticed

They fade into the dark

It is in the darkness where the light matters most

It is at the bottom where help is needed most

Found my way out of the bottom in service of others

When the opportunity came to leave

I decided to stay
