Living for Others

I was inspired to write this poem, by a famous quote that has stuck with me for years. 'Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.' This quote also relates to 'Happiness is nothing unless you have someone to share it with.' These two quotes have strong meanings to me, so I decided to write a poem in their honour.


1. Living for Others


Solitary living:

These are the the results,

Of not sharing, or giving.


Just holding the door,

Letting friends know you're there.

It's these small details

That show that you care.


A shoulder to cry on,

To impart all your fears.

Someone who's there

To wipe away the tears.


A helping hand, 

That's what matters the most.

Friends and family,

They're who are close.


Don't live alone,

Don't cry through the night.

Come out of the darkness

And into the light.
