He was not like the others.

The standard can be ultra-good,

but sometimes non-inclusive.

His humility got me.

The way he cared.

He said he worked in customer service.

He had dreams and goals,

to one day serve the public on a deeper level.

The elite can be rude,

but he was gentle.

I’m sure he has his ways,

but I never saw them.

Not until that night.
