To show gratitude to another human being
For their kindness is engraved in my bones.
Second nature is the appreciation that I have
For those who do, what they do not have to do
Say what they do not have to say,
And give what they do not have to give,
But do anyway, out of sweetness of their soul.
Appreciation in the form of actions as well as words
Are sparse in sincerity during this age.
“Thank you” has become habitual and thus
A superficial form, of communicating that
We “know” what manners are, and how to properly
But is superficial better than, no verbal appreciation at all?
People who do not say thank you are frowned upon,
They madly irritate those who execute charity and
They burn bridges, and hinder some of the opportunity
They otherwise would have had. They are detached,
Insensitive, and lack awareness.
But what makes them any different than the superficials–
Other than the fact that they do not exercise the mastery
Of their manner-skills?
Yet still, thank you, means nothing,
If you do not mean it.
