POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Note:The first two verses of this poem were inspired and came directly to me a few days ago after watching a movie in which one of the main characters was a very sweet, sensitive and kind person which is a rarity in our world of socially engineered mental illness and a long list of genders. I tried 4 different versions of the 3rd line but none were right in my mind.I thought to have patience and wait for a week or even a month if necessary and had faith the final verse would come to me eventually. While walking today, the 18th of March,2019 the words came to me.Luckily, I carry paper and pen on me for occasions as this. I wrote the entire poem out and published it today, the 18th of March 2019 in the haiku style of poetry.

I believe we are here to serve each other. Humanity should be our primary concern. How can we smile with full bellies, knowing there are many people starving? How can we feel content with all our comforts, knowing there are those without a home? There are no written laws about caring for each other, but the laws are written on our hearts. A poignant poem.

She serves her conscience. If you did not read, take a book: Indecent obsession. The writer is Colleen McCullough. Same story and good book. Regards.
