Everyone Is Worthwhile

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2015

Life is for the go-getters,
The ones who change the world.
But never forget the few of us,
That work till the tides are hurled.

We are not known across the globe,
Or have a hefty pay.
We may not even have a car,
But we do our part each day.

We make a contribution,
To the world and all who live.
And although our jobs may not seem significant,
We still work hard and smile and give.

We are the people who serve you,
The gas attendant, gardener or cashier,
We are also hidden behind the scenes,
Wishing that we could appear.

We are often overlooked,
Not even given a smile.
Next time you run a quick errand,
Remember, respect and everyone is worthwhile.

Wealth and Want
Poet: Henry Reed Conant

How often the poor are despised and neglected,
For no other reason except they are poor;
How often the rich are beloved and respected,
Because they have uncounted wealth at their door.

There’s many an honest and virtuous heart,
To-day within poverty’s prison enchained;
While thousands reside amid pleasures of art,
Whose wealth was thro’ vice and dishonesty gained.

Despise not the needy because they are poor,
Nor envy the wealthy because of their gold;
Good or ill fortune may stand at our door,
But true hearts are not to be purchased or sold.
