THE GIFT

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

I have something to give
even if the world doesn’t want it…
I have something to say
even if no one is listening…
I quietly offer my gift
to invisible hands
and empty heads
and lonely hearts
and I am rewarded only
with silent indifference
and boundless desolation.
I present my gift
unnoticed
and alone in the shadows,
I give to this uncaring universe…

and yet…
when death takes me,
I`ll know
that I gave
all I could…
