A poem inspired by the student forum

Volunteering

by Diamond Riley

Whether you’re 19

And just not making it

Or 53

And just can’t take it

It’s never too late.

You could be like one

And be above average smart

That’s all the more reason

to lend your time and heart.

I now realize it helps

And I felt the joy.

Working around someone

Who can’t write the word ‘boy.’

So many dreams and goals

If only life was fair.

I plan to go back

Because I really care.

Listening to how people’s lives have changed

Thanks to selfless souls.

There is an open mind and ear

So that the story can be told.

Everyone can’t be reached

And that is quite okay.

Nevertheless you should lend some time

And volunteer one day.
