Helping a beggar down the street
Without posting it on facebook or making
A tale out of it for popularity.
To tell the truth because it is sincere.
To call a friend who means more to you
Than just a casual friendship.
To do charity; that upon you is another’s toil
That grants a shoulder to the one
Whose clavicles are vulnerable, whose chests are bare.
To be there like how Jesus was to the marginalized
Or how Mother Theresa was there for the homeless.
To be the granter of beginnings but not ends;
The selflessness that tillers what you see as
Peduncles filled with miniature grains,
To another, a silent harvest.
