You are already serving

When you find yourself forced off your intended path,
Dealing with the grunt work of your masterpiece,
It’s tempting to think that you are wasting time.
That you could really do with less follow up phone calls,
Less meetings and emails
And more of doing what you actually signed up to do.
But you are already serving.
By sticking with the process,
Figuring out the best way forward,
Patiently inching ahead;
You are already serving your profession,
Serving the work that will serve the people.
Someone had to be the first,
Someone had to be the one to upset the status quo
And it often involves activities far removed from what you are excited to do.
But trust the process. Figure it out.
You are already serving.
