Favorite Quote:
I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one gets through to the father except through me. - Jesus Christ

Unbeknownst to you, as you sleep at night,
A child is dead, and given his last rites.
His cold, pale skin no longer red and pink,
With no more youth in his once rosy cheeks.

Yet, you dream on, uncaring of the boy,
You think that ignorance will bring you joy.
The world is empty without any hope,
None in this world to help the hurting cope.

But wait, inside your heart, is that a spark,
That will give light to those trapped in the dark?
Wait, don’t snuff it out! Let it burn with pride!
For the family of the boy that died,
Has one plea among their sorrow and pain,
That what they went through won't happen again.

You might think you're worthless, can't help a soul,
A mistake in this world, don’t have a role.
Behold! There’s a message from all in need,
and the little boy whose spirit's been freed.
Believe it or not, it's completely true,
Their only hope... And their savior... Is YOU.

The author's comments:
There is so much suffering in the world, I see it every day in the faces around me. Every single person carries pain in their eyes... Some, more so than others. People who stand by and pretend to be oblivious to whats going on, they're avoiding their responsibility to help their fellow man. Theres a lot of suffering in the world, but we can all help.
