The deep inner workings of a beggar's mind

Questions

Can you hear her
Screaming in the night?

Can you see her
Living in her fright?

Will you hold her
As she slowly dies?

Will you help her
Or just ignore her cries?

Do you hear him
Shouting loud for love?

Do you see him
Counting the stars above?

Will you guide him
As he searches for the light?

Will you help him
Or turn away your sight?

They’re searching for the answers
That they just can’t seem to find.

They’re in need of some relief
From all the pressures of the times.

We hold the key to their survival
In our hearts and hands.

Will we turn and walk away
Or do as He commands?

    Deep. And so true. People are crying out for help…but who will show them the way if not us?
