Duty or Heart

There's quite a big difference
between duty and heart
and the folks who need helping
can tell them apart

When you treat it as duty
you may get a “thank you”
but when it comes from the heart
you'll create life anew

They can see in your face
the direction you've come
if you feel burdened by them
it was duty you're from

But when it's compassion
causing you to be kind
you often give birth
to a new hope in mankind

It's written all over
folks who really care
it's shown in their eyes
and the attitude they wear

But either way
a man might sleep in a bed
a woman less cold
a child be fed

Does it really matter
whether duty or heart
when it comes to helping others
they can still both be a start
