The Doers

We are the ones who get the call

In the middle of the night when

No one else will answer.

We are the ones who show up

Always, even on our worst days.

We are the go-to children

Who get it done without question.

Yet sometimes we wonder

Where everyone else is.

So willing to give, so ready to sacrifice.

Our lives are just as busy,

Overscheduled, unbalanced.

I suppose the difference is that

We just do.
