Ripples, Small and Humble

 

Ripples small and humble, flowing modestly

            Reach further than the splash, big, for all to see

 

More personal the touch, the more effective sway

            From those with selfless motive, who live it day to day.

 

The power’s in “the being” that reaches far and wide.

            Each can make a difference, wherever they reside.

 

Ripples small and humble, flowing modestly

            Reach deeper than the splash, big, for all to see.

 

Less personal the touch, the less effective sway

            From those with self as motive, when ego leads the way.

 

The power’s in “the being” that reaches wide and far.

            Each can make a difference, no matter where they are.
