A Good Samaritan

I want to be a good Samaritan,
Not live in a secluded way,
Want to be prepared, want to be generous
Helping those in distress day by day.

I want to mingle with the common people,
Searching for the poor ones for me to see
To give them a helping hand If I can,
Hopeful, a life can be salvaged by me.

I want to aid those suffering from want
Over the trials and tribulations so steep,
To children and elders too feeble to survive,
To comfort those who pray and weep.

I want to live and surge forward
With a deep passion as time goes by,
To instill hope, love and faith in people
No richer or less adequate than I.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
