Scrutinized Under Spotlight

Living to contribute,
Often becomes a discouragement...
To those who are needlessly offended,
By the publicity given to their activities.

Many people are raised to believe,
The only reason they are here...
Is to eat, receive and to deceive.

And the ones not fitting these qualities,
Are highly suspected for seeking attention...
Until they are relieved,
From the giving of themselves willfully.

And at most times without compensation...
Suggested or received,
As a token of sincere acknowledgement.

Living to contribute,
Often becomes a discouragement...
To those who are needlessly offended,
By the publicity given to their activities.
And to be scrutinized under spotlight...
Is not the ambition of one of good deeds.
