Do The Right Thing! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

just one time...
do the right thing!
go the extra mile...

give more than you
can afford to lose.
risk it all to care...

stop what you're doing,
listen with an open heart.
stand up for someone

who's being abused
for just being different.
and as you're getting off

the ground from your latest fall...
help someone else who has fallen...
he's just like you!

after all, you're the one
you have to sleep with tonight!
do the right thing!

    Fantastic poem, Eric. I truly like it very much. What a wonderful expression in the last stanza: You're the one, you have to sleep with. So true. Making a small difference can mean so much (Report)Reply
