Why do people do favours
I have often asked myself
Do they believe
That they can really help
Or does the effort they make
Make them feel successful
Maybe if they relented
Their joy would soon turn to grief
As they realized the attempts
They once proudly made
Were simply self-satisfying
Did their motives cancel out the good they did?
Are peoples’ emotions subject to intense scrutiny?
Of which we are unaware
Does God judge us on the motives that drive us?
Everyone is contented in the end
And if not feel they have been giving a fair deal
So what need for debate I hear you say
The person feels better about their self
A feat difficult to achieve in an ever-depressed world
A much-needed task has been completed
Both interior and exterior necessities
