if not for anything else

do if for the love of some higher power

for the love of purity

and the innocence in a child’s eyes


do it for justice

for life I unfair enough already


do it for battles un-won

for joys unfelt

for uncountable smiles waiting to be put on unhappy faces


do it for mama whose pure love brought forth your life

don’t use that life to bring tears


do it for beauty

for unbroken hearts and un-shattered dreams


do it for the kindness of strangers

for we all want good deeds done to us

do it for second chances

for redemption


do it for a clear conscience

for mother earth

do it for Jesus
