Spotlight: Words

By Nancy Polanski (nap) on January 13, 2020

Your Significance ...



You may think that you are

completely insignificant in this world.

But someone drinks coffee every morning

from their favorite cup that you gave them.

Someone heard a song on the radio

that reminded them of you.

Someone read the book you recommended,

and plunged headfirst into it.

Someone remembered your joke

and smiled, returning home from work

in the evening.

Someone loves himself a little more,

because you gave them a compliment.

Never think that you have no influence

whatsoever.  Your trace, which you leave

behind with even a few good deeds,

can not be erased.

About Nancy Polanski
I live in Western New York. I'm retired, after working for 30 years in the Microbiology Labs at our county hospital. My time now is spent mostly with the Karen refugee population in Buffalo, advocating for them, teaching, helping and enjoying them. I've twice traveled to their camps in Thailand and experienced their culture. It seems they have taught me more about life than I have taught them.
