The Servant - Poem by Gavin Nelson

There was once a lonesome servant.
One day an Angel came down and said to the servant
“Why do you choose to live your life making
Other people happy, but not yourself? ”
To which the servant replied
“I do not choose to live my life making other people
Happy and not myself, I am happy to do what I do because
If I make people happy then I’m happy and that is the greatest gift a person can receive”
And the Angel said
“If the world was full of people like you,
Then people like me wouldn’t have to interfere”
