Ripple effect | #NaPoWriMo 2018 | Day 18

I saw him from a distance,
working tirelessly all day..
Selflessly making things
happen at the cost of self.
His resolve, intent, made
my knees crumble, shake.
Not many understood his
ways, myself included.
Why put them first at all,
bother if no one cares?
Somehow the question
made his lips curl, smile.
No words could explain,
answer my doubts many.
Kept me wondering, he,
his ways of life, teaching.
Then it hit me, fast, hard,
I cared to see, learn, know.
Maybe this ripple effect was
a win, satisfaction after all.
