A Sincere Yet Selfless Deed


Finding my inspiration through the voice of music and poetry. Being creative and finding ways in making life easier and smarter for others.


Time is precious,

it’s time we heed

Pay it forward,

It’s sincerely

in need of a

selfless deed

Life has its pressures,

But we count every blessing,

and help each other

find their treasures

It’s not the money you make

or ladders you climb,

give while you take

never appear fake

Always be humble,

strive to be the pillar

to those

that fumble or stumble

It starts with only

planting the seed,

think of how many

mouths we could feed,

remember it is a sincere

yet selfless deed

In essence

Paying it forward is selfless. Always remain humble, and extend a helping hand to one another, without expecting something in return. It is the greatest gift.

@ Ruby, such a precious comment and well deserved.

One good deed deserves another. It’s moments like the one you have experienced that show us how much of happiness it brings to the next.

@ Lorna, thank you for your beautiful and appreciated comment.

There are so many lessons we take out from life experiences. This definitely is highlight to it all. We never know what the next person is going through, and by paying it forward, we are making a difference to the world.

This is an inspiring poem. Playing it forward is a wonderful act of kindness. My husband and I went to the pizza hut, when he went to pay the bill he was told that a man had paid the bill. We asked who it was and the waitress said that she didn't know him. He said that he was playing it forward.
