something good

Life is
a lifelong search
for something
We all just want something
But we set out unaware of what we’re looking for
But in some way we change the world
In just the tiniest bite
And maybe tomorrow we’ll be forgotten
but today we did something worth remembering
I hope I do this by showing compassion, and heart
And for the short time I’m remembered, it will be
Because I did something good.

Elizabeth Nesbit, age 14
