I was told to throw it out…

working at a food food place

just a part time Thing

for little money

to keep me busy

and  be around people

I was told

that people come at

closing time to see

if there is food that will be

thrown out

so they can take it and eat

maybe feed their families

I was told to

throw it out

I know I will buy it

and give it

to them

it made sad

to waste when so many

hunger

it made me sad not

to just give it to them

I really felt it was

almost inhumane

why not give it to

someone who is hungry

that swallows their pride

and asks for food

for food!!

not money

just food!

but I must follow the rules

however there is always

around the rules

when rules make no sense

when people are hurting

and hungry

there goes my paychecks!!

The hidden self

If it were possible to peep into human hearts to see and expose what is there, the world would be shocked by what they would find.

All kinds of thoughts, ideas and plans are deeply lodged in the human heart; and hard to see; and hard to know.

How do you look when you are at home with your kids? Do you look as you look when you are going for an outing? Not at all. You package yourself when you are going out especially to work, to a party, to a celebration, etc.

We humans like to package ourselves for the public eye. We mask ourselves BY using lipstick; painting our fingers, make our hair, wearing all kinds of clothes.

The reason we do this is we have ‘a me I don’t like any other person to know.” Yet, I am incomplete without this side of me.

But why do I not want anyone to know this side of me? Because I fear that if thy know, they might think lowly of me or reject me. Very few people have the courage to talk about the “me I don’t want others to know.”
It takes courage to tell people, ” I am a greedy man?” Or, ” I am a very jealous man?”

Some people look so self-confident in the public eye; yet they are full of self-doubts. Everybody knows them to be full of self-confidence. Do you think such people would find it easy to tell people they do not have self-confidence or they have self doubts? Not at all. They will prefer to be seen as self-confident.

The “Me” such people do not like others to know is that they are full of self-doubt.
Who is the you you don’t like any other person to know? Do you have the courage to talk about this?

Not all will follow you

No matter how great a leader you may be,
Not all will follow you;
Many will; many will not;
Nothing pleases some as your downfall;

No matter how kind you may be,
Not all will like you;
Many will, many will not;
Nothing pleases some as your downfall.

No matter how good your work may be,
Not all will appreciate it;
Many will; many will not;
Nothing pleases some as your downfall.
