What did you do?

I give no standing ovations just because of who you are
Your title, bloodline, fame, fortune or worldly possessions
Make not a great person or someone I wish to honour
I raise my head and salute those whose actions shout
Admire and celebrate those who do for their fellow man
In the quiet and darkness of the performance itself
Not in the spotlight and praise of a fandom
At the time of your passing, your doing will persist
In those you’ve made a helpful difference to.
