Certain things will remain
The most pertinent always,
Even when it shall bother no one,
As it is important despite the malaise.
To care for family, to love
Make small gestures the big ones,
Even when it shall seem naive,
It remains important despite the waging tongues.
Making your worry mine,
Going that extra mile,
Even if it shall seem unwise,
It is important to care, despite being branded juvenile.
Standing up for the voiceless,
Being the right in all the wrong,
Even if it seems futile,
It’s important to try despite the apathy all along.
Being righteous and feeling for everything,
The country, people and its systems,
Even if it’s thought-off as pointless,
It is important for my conscience despite the apathetic resistance.
It is important as this is not what I want
To leave behind as my legacy,
Not what I want my child to have & not cherish,
Thus, it’s important for me to have my ‘intention’ integrity.
