Be of Service


There is nothing more honorable

Then being of service to another

To give of yourself in humility

See the world larger than yourself

To recognize humanity on every face

It is not wrong to lower yourself

In an effort to help another stand

To come in second for wants

To risk giving too much

You do not kneel in subservience

You bend weighted by empathy

To wash the feet of a traveler

To reassure a frightened child

To tie a grandfatherโ€™s shoe

It is from here below

That you stand the tallest
