Surely there are those

Whom our lives will touch

But not for everyone

Will this matter much


I do not know whose life

I’ve changed, nor how or why

But, I hope that I accomplish

Such a feat, before I die


Alas, my feeble non attempts

Do my endeavors me belie

For my malaise, of mankind’s woes

Only means, I do not try


I look around, and see the same in others  

Self interest only, without an outcry

So, I carry on the status quo and ask

If you don’t, then, why should I
