Surrender

I do not claim to know why,
          but strive to do what’s honorable, honest and good.
I do not know why I am so driven to do what’s good,
          but it is part of my cellular make-up
                    that is outside my realm of consciousness and understanding.
I strive to understand why most people are not driven to do good and be honest, support, sincere.
 
Has our world made us so cyncical and insecure, that we simply cannot trust what we instinctlively know is right and good?
It seems ego and self-importance is more important then generousity, kindness and friendship.
 
I mourn the loss of these values in the world.
 
I surrender the expectation that others will respond in good ways.
 
Regardless, I will continue to
     be kind to all friends and strangers,
     be supportive and helpful to all those in need
     be generous in spirit and love to all.
These values I cannot surrender.
