Quiet caring

Anyone can profess to care, but how many prove it? It is easy to set the mouth in motion, with nothing to back it up. It is not the talk but the walk that counts.

People will say anything, and perhaps believe it. But how few there are who demonstrate their beliefs without a single word. Their lives are there to tell the story.

Words have power, but without action they remain inert. Do something and let others do the talking. It does not need to be large and grandiose, there is much to be said for simple acts of kindness.

Those who wish to be seen show what they truly care about. When it is real, the cameras are not around. And no bill is received for services rendered.

The empty of heart desire praise. They seek validation, when only thanks is deserved. Do not strain your arm patting yourself on the back.

Good does not require an audience. What it does is because it cares. This secret love can fill the world, without anyone knowing whence it comes.


  1. Caring shouldn't have a price. It should just be the norm. In a perfect world it would be. There is nothing wrong with representing a perfect world.

    1. Most people aren't concerned with the cost, but with the payoff. After all, what are they going to get out of it? If you care for a reason, it is immediately invalidated.
