Going Where Need Is - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak

Life has nothing but difficulties tied to it, most of
them are brought on by people and agencies designed to
supposedly help people who need it.

But they get caught up in red tape and bureaucracy, ending
up not being helped even when in dire need of it, left
standing empty-handed unable to care for their families.

Why can't people just take others in and help them without
making them tell their whole life story, they just seem to
be busy bodies it seems to me.

If I had lots of money, I wouldn't wait for people to come
to me, I'd go where they are, much like Mother Theresa did
and personally help them.

That way I'd know they were getting needed help, not like
these agencies who end up only paying and helping themselves
while herding people like cattle, wanting their information.

Why has life been lowered so much, making money have so much
value and prestige, instead of human beings, where and where
was our compassion and caring thrown away in life? r
We the People need to unite and begin helping Americans,
doing away with unhelpful agencies just filling their own
pockets and egos.

With bloated importance of what they think they're doing,
so self-important and uncompassionate in the process, not
really helping anyone with respect of dignity in the end.
