Volunteering+Reciprocation=(not) Obligation

If you are volunteering your services,
That is exactly what that means.
Your services are consciously volunteered.

IF you are volunteering with accompanied expectations...
You set yourself up for disappointment.
And those who do this are not empathized at all.

Very few are dedicated to reciprocation.
Since to do so is not an obligation.
And some folks select to enforce a connection,
Between these disconnections.
Volunteering+Reciprocation=(no t) Obligation.

Unless I Volunteer To Give It

No time do I have,
Is for you to use.
Unless I volunteer to give it.
And
In my giving of it to you,
I hope you are in the mood
To do whatever it is that you do,
With a chosen volunteering.
Of your passionate and hypnotic wisdom,
I love
Whenever we both have time,
To enjoy the process of volunteering.

Who Is Going To Get The Credit For It

Volunteering one's time in some communities,
Has led to the experience or receiving indignities...
By some.

In areas where egos are high in number.
And years are clocked for doing the slightest thing.
Volunteering one's time in some communities,
Where neglect has been obviously done...
By those peacocking nonstop providing lip service.
Can be detrimental to one's generosity of spirit.

Volunteering one's time in these atmospheres,
Can pose a threat,
To those who are accustomed to complaining.
They will state their issues have been overlooked.
And what is it really wished personally by someone donating time.
Since they have had the time themselves
And nothing seems to have gotten done.

These comments are unbelievably 'consciously' stated.

Save That Look For Someone Else

I want to make one thing perfectly clear!

'Okay.
And...
What is that? '

Oh no.
You are not going to try to trick me.
I know what you're up to.
You want me to provide clarity,
BEFORE your questions are asked.
Don't you?

'But,
I didn't ask you for clarity.
You volunteered.'

I see.
So now you want to take advantage of my honesty.
You think I'm stupid?

Confession is the voluntary suppression of concealment. It doesn't mean that you have nothing to hide but that nothing should be completely concealed.

Opening Scenerio

Someone takes a job volunteering,
To protect a segment of a neighborhood...
Where those living in it have allowed crime to nourish,
To ignore as if to encourage it.

The volunteer carries a gun.
Not only to protect himself.
But everyone living in this neighborhood infested,
To protect them from thugs and common thieves.
No one else wanted to volunteer to protect themselves,
FROM 'themselves'.

Someone decides they want to play 'thug' for the night.
Inviting confrontation.
That person gets shot.
And no one pours out from inside their bolted doors,
To rush to see what was going on.

Does it really matter who is or is not innocent?
When wild animals are running around rampant in a zoo?

Volunteer To Be Happy

Sad things happen. Of this there's no doubt.
But that's not what this thought's all about.
When something goes wrong, most volunteer
To fall down and stop or stand up and cheer.

It's easy to fall when goblins are grand,
But there's something I don't understand.
And that's why some volunteer to be sad
For what could have been, since all is so bad.

Suns keep rising and there're always more springs,
So volunteer to be happy for these wondrous things.
Take off those shades and try a new style.
It's hard to feel bad when sporting a smile.

Why volunteer sadness when costs are so high?
It's like choosing death before having to die.
I guess only the lonely really know why.

Volunteering

I remember those days,
When people volunteered their services...
Without getting paid. This was a civil duty,
Just to keep their neighborhoods...
Looking and appearing to be clean,
And trash free as something understood.

But those days are gone.
And behind us now!
Today?
People expect payment as if entitled,
For their agitation that irritates others.
And with a volunteering of it that is devoted.

Be Sensitive

Mere presence can be a disturbance.
Giving advice can be a nuisance.
Volunteering can be irksome.
Be sensitive to the situation.
