Don't Look Away

When I make a mistake, don't look away.
When things go wrong, don't look away.
When I writhe in pain, don't look away.
When evil men hold society hostage, don't look away.
When charlatans enter the stage, don't look away.
When I'm cold, don't look away.
When misfortune pays me a visit, don't look away.
When I fall down, don't look away.
When my decisions go south, don't look away.
When my heart is broken, don't look away.
When I'm drowning, don't look away.
When my roof is on fire, don't look away.
When you hear a cry from a distance, don't look away.
When I knock on your door, don't look away.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
The poem x-rays the indifference in our world, the lack of humanity. Nobody really cares about the other person. That's the reason for so much anger and hate. If only we could show love, give a listening ear and not turn a blind eye to that fellow in pain or in need, the world will be a better place.
