when you reach out a hand or lend a shoulder
a piece of yourself could get lost in it.
i don’t tend to your wounds so that i could share my own
i’m not looking for brownie points
i don’t sell cookies for charity
this isn’t community service & participation
i don’t think i do things just to flaunt
i do what i wish to do
what my heart wants me to do
what i feel i should do.
people may not always see me, but i’m just there.
i can take care of myslf.
and sometimes when i have the time i take care of other people too.
i don’t do it because i wanna play hero
i do it because that’s what i feel like doing –
even when it’s difficult, painful, and heart-shattering.
i just feel like doing it.
even if there isn’t anything in return.
i’m not carrying out a business.
i don’t have to count my profits
how long before i break-even
how long before i cross the profit margin
if evrythng needs to be calculated and put into numbers
then what is the price of the human heart?
