Volunteer To Help…!

Deep within me

Deep within my soul

I hold a passion that no one else understands

A passion to render help

To people who did not solicit for it

And to some others in dire need of me


How happy I feel to see the smiles on their faces

When I listen to their pathetic stories

The hurt and pain they have been through

And the lonesome feeling of separation

From families and loved ones

A moment with these Refugees

Became a time well spent


I volunteer to help anyone

As my inner spirit leads me

And it did lead me to the elderly in my city

To be in their midst once every week

Together with other volunteers

We cook and eat together

Every visit to the elderly people’s home

Leaves me fulfilled and happier


To listen to them as they share their pains and sorrows

To go on occasional walk with them

To visit and keep them company

To cheer them up

Became a craving

A strong desire


Thus I create the time

‘Cos I love it so

To share a moment with them

To talk and listen to their heartaches

Became a source of joy to me

Became a passion I cherish

Perhaps, it’s innate in me

To help lessen the burden of others

So I pledged to give my time

For the sake of love

For humanity

To render help without a fee

To volunteer

Without any charges

  1. Oh Stella, yay! This is an exquisite poem! It reminds me how the sacred act of loving another person and how giving can open us to the divine in life. You are such a gift do you know that? I’m about to post my #ForgivingFridays for this week and will surely add it! Love, Debbie


  2. Thank you so much for this. It really expresses your respect towards volunteers. Really saying the people who do volunteering, gain much knowledge. Basically, volunteering is nothing helping someone who is in need. I state that “By doing good for others you are doing good for yourself”. By doing this we can gain some knowledge, become creative, develop skills. Volunteering shouldn’t be there only in one society or one community, it should be there around the world so that the people around the world understand the importance of volunteering. Onata is the one which provides an opportunity to the people, who are interested in volunteer, here you can find out all the opportunities.
