Ever feel if any of it matters? Ever wonder if you are making a difference? You are! Importance is simply a matter of perspective. If you don’t do what you do, you will be missed. It will make a difference. So do what it is that you do, and do it with the whole of your heart. Do it well. Be the difference that you want to see.
Epic ; by Patrick Kavanagh
I have lived in important places, times
When great events were decided, who owned
That half a rood of rock, a no-man’s land
Surrounded by our pitchfork-armed claims.
I heard the Duffys shouting “Damn your soul!”
And old McCabe stripped to the waist, seen
Step the plot defying blue cast-steel –
“Here is the march along these iron stones.”
That was the year of the Munich bother. Which
Was more important? I inclined
To lose my faith in Ballyrush and Gortin
Till Homer’s ghost came whispering to my mind.
He said: I made the Iliad from such
A local row. Gods make their own importance.
