Pocket Change

today I did something selfless
believe me
even though I state it outright

I helped someone and
did it all for the pocket change
of knowing there’s a chance
that I made a difference

my shadow’s still gray
as ever, the rocks
are still gray as ever

the sun sets, people lie
the night is black
and friendships die

but this little light I lit
still shines

and every second counts
