stickmanthe power of the lesser known
will always escape us
if we’re not mindful…

It’s the one who cleans up all the mess, just because…

It’s the one who makes sure you are fed enough, just because…

It’s the one who waits up for you even after hours, just because…

It’s the one who stays with you when you’re hurting, just because…

It’s the one who puts a smile back on your face, just because…

It’s the one who rocks you gently to sleep, just because…

It’s the one who holds you when its dark, just because…

It’s the one who remembers you with a nudge, just because…

It’s the one who makes you laugh, just because…

It’s the one who is with the umbrella when it rains, just because…

It’s the one who has your laundry smelling of the sun, just because…

It’s the one who listens while you absentmindedly rant, just because…

It’s the one who is at the sideline waiting while you bathe in your limelight, just because…

It’s the one who reaches out to give you a hand, just because…

It’s the one who loves you regardless what the world says about you, just because…

it’s the power of the lesser known
that makes it comfortable and easy for us
to go on doing what we feel is important to us,
while the power of the better known
is lauded with praises and wreaths and awards
so that we may measure our successes and failures against their great fortune.
