Joseph T. Renaldi (Frackville, Pennsylvania)
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.
