Everyone Is Worthwhile

By Julie Hebert

Life is for the go-getters,
The ones who change the world.
But never forget the few of us,
That work till the tides are hurled.

We are not known across the globe,
Or have a hefty pay.
We may not even have a car,
But we do our part each day.

We make a contribution,
To the world and all who live.
And although our jobs may not seem significant,
We still work hard and smile and give.

We are the people who serve you,
The gas attendant, gardener or cashier,
We are also hidden behind the scenes,
Wishing that we could appear.

We are often overlooked,
Not even given a smile.
Next time you run a quick errand,
Remember, respect and everyone is worthwhile.
