Donate Secretly - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

Donate secretly

Sometimes we donate
And relate
Gesture among relatives
Pure show and indicative of richness

It is good to give some help to needy
That has been taken note of already
But it loses shine
The moment sanctity behind is declined

The old saying goes ahead
The right hand should not come to know of left hand
When charity is not done openly
it is to help mainly

Sometimes it may be big amount
And good publicity may be warranted
but it shall defeat the purpose behind
The gesture may not be looked kind

Give secretly and keep name unknown
As you are parting the amount of your own
It is wish of your internal voice
and you have made it as your choice

    giving and not expecting anything in return, not even recognition, is too selfless for many people. you're right, true giving does not seek to be praised or rewarded. the reward comes from knowing you helped somebody, we should all try giving anonymously in this world of materialism and narcissism.
