Counting Cash

Is easy.

You will know 

When you have it 

And you’ll feel it 

When you don’t.

But what about impact?

What about the people

Who’ve quietly admired you from afar

And have found courage and inspiration

From seeing your story unfold as it has?

Unlike cash,

You often don’t know 

How much of a difference  

Your life has made,

And you may never quite fully know-

So if it’s impossible to be certain,

Why not just tell yourself

The best version of the story?

That those generous choices you made 

In obscurity 

Were all worth it,

And that doing the right thing

In the dark 

Actually does count for something,

And ultimately while 

You may struggle to measure it,

Every good endeavour 

Is worth its weight in gold.
