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 Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
