After seeing so many upsetting you tube moments about people not showing compassion, I have to say something. Watching video of a test of humanity just makes my heart drop. Whats the matter with people? It’s like they give no thought to passing someone in need and not even acknowledging their existence.
Not only that but now there are people who are helping in some cases where local politics have banned feeding people who are homeless and hungry. They are complaining about these people shitting in the park. Well get together and put up a port-o-potty or ten.
Please don’t look away again. That someone who really needs your help is someones mother or son or father. They didn’t start out in the way that you see them now. Look a little deeper.
If I’m on the ground writhing in pain
Would you stop for me in the pouring rain
If my skin is red or white or black
Would you keep walking and never look back
If I was dripping in gold, but smelled like mold
Would you pass me by
If you heard me cry
If I begged and pleaded help me
Would you turn the other way pretending not to see
I needed help at a point in my life
Nobody came to free me from strife
Nobody cared to see inside
Before things got so crazy on this maddening ride
Knowing now what you didn’t know then
Would you help another and make them your friend
Would you look closer at the troubled on the street
Or would you keep walking, pounding your feet
My hope is to wake you now and say open your eyes
Before it’s too late and everyone dies
Everyone dies, we know that’s true
It will be remembered what you did or did not do
