Poem- thanks

Do you do nice things
because they are
the right thing
to do,

or

do you
do them
so that
you’ll get a thank-you note
and praise?

We all like
thank you notes.
We like
to know
that what we
are doing
is appreciated.

Sometimes, though,
you have to
recalibrate yourself
and understand
that what
you’re doing
is the reward
itself.
