Charity Is Hope

 

Can't you see them

please do not ignore,

how can you just pass them by

like so many times before?

~~

Every hand that reaches out

Isn't asking to be shaken,

It simply reaches out to you

from a soul that's been forsaken.

~~

That homeless man over there

served his country well,

fighting for our freedom

until the day he fell.

~~

And see the woman with a buggy

she was a mother and a wife,

but she lost her spouse and children

she lost everything but her life.

~~

That cardboard box in the alley

has not a bed nor wheels,

but beds a lost and lonely soul

can you imagine how he feels.

~~

If not for the gift of charity

to aid the way their forced to live,

they would die a hopeless death

because we didn't give.

~~
