Defining Moment

I was having a defining moment
thinking of my value to life
realizing I hadn't done much
of consequence for all the strife

I thought of all my failures
things of which I didn't succeed
perhaps it was just lack of self worth
or a sad heart I had to feed

No matter what the reason
I decided to take a look
back into my journals
my own history book

Seemed strange all the things I'd forgotten
little things I'd done along my way
things that didn't seem like much
but I did them every day

Little steps towards the tomorrows
touching lives, being a friend
certain things kept shining through
right up to the end

What had seemed of little consequence
had really changed peoples lives
adding love and hope, through honesty
not back stabbing them with lies

I read of my pain in growing
to be who I am now
with small touching of a friendly thought
I had helped many problems to dissolve

When I looked back at all my deeds
unsubstantial as they had seemed
I realized in my hand I held
so many people's precious dreams

I no longer feel the empty place
I had felt when I began
And now I know there is great value
in just being who I am

So when you think your worthless
with no importance to defend
take another look and see
the importance in just being a friend

Amidst the many things that pull on us
'With a friend' is a very nice place to be.
