There are many whose hopes are minimal
and whose future seem but bleak
There is nothing short of a miracle
when the strong help the weak.
There are many whose situations are critical
so in hope for answers they seek
but for many their hearts grow cynical
when the strong wonít help the weak.
There are those who are hypocritical
and pride themselves in theories of technique
Their works are completely lyrical
and their actions seldom speak.
If those of us who are strong wonít lend a helping hand
then the burdens of those whose troubles grow
will push them further into sinking sand.
There is a joy that is unique
to those who choose to give
There is true fulfillment and purpose
for those who so choose to live.
We certainly canít do everything
but let us be mindful of when we can
Let us look to do good for our neighbor
and so fulfill Godís perfect plan .
This is one of your best works, in part because it is complex and yet well-balanced. You never stray from your central premise and it is beautifully structured and inspiring. This is like an admonishment from the Psalms....very good and needful. The strong helping the weak....hmmmn. Sounds like a great idea....
