Favorite Quote:
"Be still and know that I am God."


Come forth weary passerby, to the edge of the morrow,
Come forth with your troubles of incredible sorrow.
Come forth endearing and inspiring all who may follow.
Come to this haven of security, unlike your field which lay fallow,
Barren and untouched, by liquid for days.


The author's comments:

This piece is an entirely fictional piece of poetry, meant to inspire those who may feel lost throughout their lifetime or those who have experienced financial hardships. I was inspired to write this article after coming to this shocking realization--not all are as fortunate as I am. Not all are able to come home to the comforts of a warm bed and a loving family. Many are struggling to provide for their families. This poem was also written from the perspective of a person which chooses to take in this passerby, who have found themselves unable to provide for their family. This poem is meant to be uplifting and inspire those who consider themselves' a "weary passerby".
