Messenger of Light

If a ray of hope exist for a burdened life,
If you could be the messenger,
A carrier of light,
Dry the tears of some,
Sing songs to delight,
Would you?

If from a high position
You could step into a low one,
And from that humble position
be an entirely broken human,
Would you?

Would you wash dirty, dirt,
Lotion crusty smelly feet,
clothe a mad man,
Defend a convict,
Have conversations with a homeless man?

Could you be a helper,
If the requirement necessary
Was to see the desperate as worthy?
If you’re answer is yes, 
Take you’re light and shine it on others.
Be an ambassador of life
In order that change might occur.
