A Poem I Found In My Notebook…

Overcome Indifference

 

You may be sitting there

In your favorite easy chair

Thinking to yourself

‘Why should I care

I have not anything to share.’

 

But you can make a difference

If only you overcome your indifference,

Allow yourself to reach out

Across that spiked fence

You created as your world defense.

 

With that small smile

You locked away in childhood’s file,

You can overcome the woe

That has daunted someone’s smile

And so help undo a sad trial.

 

Take a little chance,

Get up off the seat of your pants,

Try to give a helping hand.

Even a tiny effort plants

A seed for someone’s better chance.
