It’s not easy to extend your hand in hopes that you will get the help you so badly need

It’s even harder to choose to be the one to help

Sometimes the decision to help is a part of you

You don’t know any different and its second nature to you

Don’t waste time thinking of what others might think

Because you extended your hand as the giver or the taker

Think of how you would feel if you didn’t

Don’t feel guilty if you can’t afford to extend your hand

Sometimes you may be the one who needs the help

Be open to receiving help

For as long as you are willing to offer help to others in need

Your needs will also be met in some way at some time

We are giving kind

We just need a small reminder sometimes

No one is too good to help nor too good to receive

People are both givers and receivers

Be there for those in their time of need and they will be there for you

Help is always there, all you need is ask

I wrote this poem on 10/02/2013 in a tribute to those who were and

continue to be out of work due to government shutdowns,

but it applies to all those in need everywhere at any time.

Bless you all and your families.

I thought I saw a light at the end of the tunnel

I’m working hard to fight my way through it all

So many obstacles in my way



A Dictatorship



So many have fought for our freedom

But yet we still seem to be imprisoned by the ignorance of man himself

Forever trapped in his own demise

Someday when his eyes are opened he can help me find my way out

Out of the darkness of the light
