Perplexity

Helping hand

Just

Do not

Understand it!

I am a helper,

I love to help,

But why doesn’t everyone?

Why are some selfish,

Unwilling to give a helping hand?

I just don’t understand it at all!

They are missing out on so very much.

Greeter

Welcome Mat

Welcome!

My name is Mat

I meet and greet you daily 

I put myself out there for you 

Just smile

Acknowlege that I am sincere

My heart’s very fragile

Not a Door Mat

I’m real

A Greeter is a person who greets people entering a store, church service, or other public place. When I wrote this poem I was thinking of Dennis who is a greeter at our local Walmart store. He is always friendly and outgoing no matter the day or time. He always greets with a smile, handshake, fist bump and good word. So many people appreciate his sincere friendly attitude. The world can surely use more people like this!
