Unthanked

This is just a little draft, dedicated to my amazing mom. Thank you so much for always being here for me. You are amazing!  ❤

This one goes out to the ones who go unthanked,
The ones whose check is blank,
Who are full of strength–
The kind of strength that does what needs to be done,
Seeks acknowledgement from no one,
With consistency and integrity continue to run
The race that is set before them
Don’t care if you ignore them
Or scorn them
Deplore them
Cause they know there is more than
What you see when you look around.
They’re a movement of resolution and constitution
They say everyone wants a revolution
But no one wants to do the dishes
Not dismissive or submissive
But not just looking out for their own interests, their wishes.
They’re the real activists
Just by living out their lives making a difference
On each person that they touch and together,
That’s the way to change the world.
