Heartless

~A Guilt We Share~

From the

Word Garden

Of

Valormore

 

We all, can be so heartless.

At times we pour out compassion,

beyond our immediate circle of

family and friends to include others.

While forgetting to be a friend

to those who need us most.

~*~

At times we ignore the plight of strangers,

turning our face away from social injustice.

We feel powerless to effect a change.

Thus we cower before evil.

 

~*~

We may invest resources to take up the cause of the bleeding crowd,

devote our life to making a difference in the fate of humanity.

At the same time, not notice, our neighbor is starving

or that our brother is contemplating suicide.

~*~

Everyone, needs a friend.

Every group needs a compassionate guide.

Every nation needs wise and caring leaders.

The world needs everyone to care about everyone.

~*~

We are ineffective, when we feel alone.

Alone, we don’t know what to do.

When we know, we are afraid to act.

Too often, we act selfish and heartless.

~*~

The End
