In this world in which we live,
It is very sad, but true.
There is someone that is much worse off,
Than me, or even you.
We must reach out our hand to them,
Extend it and try to share.
And do it with the utmost humility,
And genuinely show we care.
Because people need our help,
But sometimes they won't ask.
Because their pride will always set in,
And not allow them such a task.
So if you see someone struggling,
Please stop and say hello.
And ask if they need your help,
And their smile will start to grow.
So please show give a smile
To strangers all around,
And you can do this all with kindness,
And all, without making a sound.
