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.

    1. True joy comes from within, and it certainly helps to be in a community where people are respected and valued more than possessions and not simply treated as if they are interchangeable. When a person’s needs are met, those people often don’t go in search of happiness or fulfillment. The point of this blog is to spread a message of love and to show how hate and discrimination affect people because their effects are long-lasting, trickling down from one generation to another. Where does it end, When does it end? There’s a great need for love and kindness in this world, and there is also a need for disrespect to end. Also read, Eyes on the Future, found in this blog.
