A Helping Hand - Poem by Ray Hansell

Make a difference
Each day you live
Open your heart
Learn to give

Life for many
Is so unkind
Giving people
Are hard to find

So open your heart
Give what you can
We’re all responsible
For our fellow man

It’s so easy to look
The other way
But the tables could turn
On any given day

So help if you can
For one day you may be
The one who’s down and out
The one no one will see

    This poem is pure, perfect, and true!
    It rightly is deserving of a '10', and I'm also saving it to my favourite poems.
    May you produce more little jewels such as this one!
