    Without Borders

Lonely is the road,
None is the company.
I'm here all alone,
Only stars to accompany.

I fight my own war
Every single day.
Life's never too easy,
That's what they say.

I go to exotic places
People have only dreamed.
I had loved my job,
More than her, it seemed.

What do I do, you ask?
I help those in need
However menial the task,
It is noble, noble indeed.

Doctors without borders
That's our name.
We work 'cause we want to
Not because of petty fame.
 
I'll give a thousand lives such
To give that feverish child
A syrup she needs so much.

Very few share my vision
Of a world, so free
of unrest.
Until my job is done
I refuse to rest.
 
Sometimes, all alone in my head
I wonder if it was worth
All the sacrifices I've made.
    
My doubts clear when
I see that child smiling
And her mother crying
Thankin' me for saving
Her child who was dying.

This is my humble fee
For the things I gave.
A smile of gratitude
From the people I save.

Generous sentiments

Your poem drew me out of my navel-gazing - thank you.

Social Service is not for money-obsessed individuals.

People HAVE second thoughts when they choose a miserable life over luxury and comfort. I don't usually comment but the level of obnoxiousness & indifference to such sacrifices shown by tazz is not acceptable,more...

Hats off!

Nice sentiments throughout the poem. Sometimes the best words flow out when they are dedicated to others. I am looking forward to more of your writings.

Thoughtful

Nice sentiments to the dedicated souls who selflessly help others in their time of need. It's a thought provoking poem. I hope you write more.
