What about others?

Life’s most insistent and compelling question,

Resonates through every fibre of our being,

A divine call to act with love and compassion,

To serve others, and give life a deeper meaning.

It echoes like a song in our hearts,

Guiding us towards a higher mission,

To play a role in healing the world’s broken parts,

And to find our purpose in selfless submission.

For we are not alone on this earth,

We are all connected in a grand design,

Each one of us has inherent worth,

And a purpose to fulfil, divine.

When we ask ourselves this question,

We must search deep within our soul,

To find ways to make a connection,

And offer love, kindness, and a helping role.

We can give our time, our talents, and our treasure,

To those in need, in pain, and in despair,

We can lift them up and give them pleasure,

And show them that we genuinely care.

For life is not just about ourselves,

It is about the impact we make on others,

It is about leaving a legacy that tells,

Of a life well-lived, a life that matters.

So let us all rise to the occasion,

And answer this urgent call,

Let us serve with love and compassion,

And make a difference, big or small.

For in the end, it’s not what we’ve gained,

But what we’ve given, that will define,

The beauty of a life, well-arranged,

And the legacy we leave behind.

– Maroof
