What a tough job to have to navigate
through the darkest corners
of the minds of others,
rather than your own.
Those paths where the ground is shaky,
where the foundation have cracks,
where the earth moves,
where some of the tracks of life
are blurry, without enough light,
and there is no sense of wellbeing or happiness.
But perhaps there is no tougher job
than that of dealing with minds
that not only lack meaning and purpose in life,
but are also potentially or inherently
wicked, devious, reckless, delusional
or simply love themselves so much
that there is no room to care for anyone else.
Hence, it is only because of this awesome labor
of deeply rooted vocational love
for the wellbeing of others,
that such worthy endeavor
makes that big a difference
in the lives of many.
The type of non-stop steady effort
that addresses every obstacle and every crisis
or extreme situation
with resolve and genial creativity,
the kind that connects with each individual
and makes them feel and believe
they are unique, respected and worthy,
but above all,
“able to” grow, overcome and have a future,
as long as they are willing to shape-up, do the work
and perform at high standards.
What a tough job doing good,
by improving the mindset of others in need,
what an impossible job to perform
for those in need of redemption,
those in need of a second act in life,
those that very few support or believe in.
What a tough job,
What an impactful task,
What a wonderful labor of love,
that’s what you’ll do,
that’s what you will be leaving in your wake,
that’s what you would have done!
