The Starfish Poem 

“Good morning! What are you doing?
The young man paused,
Looked up and replied,
“Throwing starfish in the ocean.”
“I guess I should have asked,
Why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?
“The sun is up and the tide is going out.
And if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.”
“But, young man, don’t you realize that
There are miles and miles of beach
And starfish all along it.
You can’t possibly make a difference!”
The young man listened politely.
Then bent down, picked up another starfish
And threw it into the sea,
Past the breaking waves and said-
“It made a difference for that one.”
