I did not say no…

You can say no quite easily, you know

This doesn’t fall in your domain, and so

You are under no obligation to go out of your way

To try to do something that in the end may

Turn out to be an exercise in futility

Your skill-set may not in this case have utility

There isn’t enough time to waste, yours or

That of the person you’re offering your service for


You are about to say no, but you turn back once more

And catch the desperation in their eye that you’d missed before

Something tells you to at least hear the problem in detail

Even if at finding a solution you fail

You could bring them a step closer to the answer they need

If you don’t do anything, your refusal would trouble you indeed


So without making any promises, you hear them out

You don’t have the answer, but without a doubt

You know the next step to take in this case

That will help them get to the right place


The right place was found, the issue was resolved

Your help was crucial in getting the problem solved

It was easy to say no, it was your right too

But the universe moves forward because of those who

Go the extra mile without any expectation in mind

They are the ones who innovative solutions find
