We do not see them
In person.

Most of us
Never will.

So why
Do we keep coming back?

The pictures,
They’re too little.

The videos,
They’re not enough.

So why
Do we keep coming back?

We know
We make a difference.

Is that enough?
Is that impact
All we need
To keep coming back?

For some of us
It is enough.

But for others?
Why do we keep coming back?

We provide resources
For those
Who may not
Have enough.

But
Is that enough?

There is that school,
That,
That may be enough.

It’s not just a school,
However,
It is a dream.

We know what
It looks like.

We know that
We built it.

It is a physical
Representation
Of
That dream.

Our dream?
Is it
Compassion?
Or
Unity?
Or
The greater good?
Is it
Pride?
The list goes on.

But
Is it
Any of these things?

For all of us,
Yes.

At the very least
One
Of those words.

Compassion
Is our character.

Unity
Is the key resource
We need
To stay
Together.

The greater good
Is what we work for.
Pride
Is what we take
In our work.

That
Is why we keep coming back.
