Helping a world in trouble (poem)

17 Mar

In times of crisis, we can help each other.

Helping a World in Trouble

When troubles come to our door, when the world has gone astray,
When yesterday is no more, and the future’s lost its way.
When no one knows what to do, other than just to wait and see,
When we’ve lost our way through, and do not know what to be.

We can live within today, look for where the needs are now,
Help others to find their way, even if we are not sure how.
This moment is for giving, a chance to help where we can,
For our life is for living, and helping our fellow man.

It may not be an easy choice, it may seem hard for today,
But if others hear your voice, then you can help guide their way.
If you can keep on going, clearing the path as you do,
Then to others you are showing, that there is a way through.

These troubles will pass one day, and our life will recover,
For now, just do what you may, and then you will discover,
That this world we can restore, a better future we can find,
That we can move on once more, with our lives recombined.
