REACH OUT… a poem

How can it be that we turn our heads,

Or walk past the struggling man?

A simple act of kindness, as it’s called today,

Was always part of God’s plan.

“Do unto others…” wasn’t just a line

From a book that is centuries old.

No, it’s called being human, with a heart that gives

To another with love in your soul.

So, slow down and help that person in need

And reach out with a helping hand.

When you lift someone up from a place of despair

Then and there you’ll finally understand.
