The Indifferent - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

The Indifferent
do not count me among
the indifferent for
i have too much
compassion for mankind
to turn a deaf ear to
the sick, lost or those
subjected to injustice

i am driven by a need
for peace not for
myself alone
but all who inhabit
the world and if
indifference is tantamount
to lifelessness
do not count me
among the living dead
