Like the Guy On TED Said

Why do those who love to help
Assume that those they want to help
Actually want the help?

Charity, boosters, providers of whatever
Have a place in doing good, but
Are their efforts always well meaning?

Some people don’t want the help.
Some people don’t want to help.
Some people just want to be.

Maybe charity or advocacy must come
From the one needing whatever it is
To ask for those with the skills of service.

Don’t take this wrong do gooders
You are vital and necessary.
Only slow down, be sure you are wanted.
