This Is For the Quiet People
excerpted from the KotaPress collection Drift
By Trevor Hewett

This is for the quiet people, those
who bump through life securing
bouts of happiness amid the rest,
accept they cannot influence
the world about them, only
bearing just enough in terms
of skill to feed and clothe themselves
and family, yet live
with dignity and honesty,
not over-wanting stuff,
experience or cash,
and draw from simple things -
like children, gardens, light -
the grace, the joy to carry on
and, somehow, find the strength
to give some good to someone else.
