Carry On: A Poem of Inspiration
When little children need food, clothing to give them warmth, do help them out,
An old man on the street, nothing on his plate to eat, holey clothes, see about.
If a mother to be, makes home beneath a tree, with no money, help her, please,
Say god is great, we're hear to help, not to wait, show you care, a life to ease.
When a brother has no ride, no support, from his family, hides, extend a hand,
A sister who is lame, can't get to town, is a shame, take her there, understand.
The child who comes to school, to practice the Golden Rule, starving, is so shy,
As a small boy burns his hand, to feed his sister, not his plan, no, don't just cry!
An elderly man across the street, gives his dog his only treat, as he has no food,
Better, this animal to help survive, here, his kindness does so thrive, of the good.
A neighbor's mower, broken, alas, just go and cut his grass, not such a big deal,
The lonely girl across the road, has to carry a big load, make it lighter, her to feel.
Children in your class, have no lunch, feel outcast, a turkey dinner is so great,
Christmas coming on, student's smiles are shown, to decorate, can hardly wait.
The nicest gift each can receive, a happy day, in you to believe, do so expect,
No better feeling you might record, memories, you may afford, their best respect.
Do carry on, give of yourself, take your best hat off the shelf, then wear it well,
Another day upon this earth, means so much, to show our worth, without fail.
Tomorrow is just another day, now's the time, that we may say, we are sincere,
Give all a hand up, not a hand out, back on their feet, give a shout, with no fear.
We may make a difference, so carry on. my good and faithful servant, carry on,
We are here to help, from our birth, not to face the world, of its worst, all alone.
To our friends and neighbors, just to give a hand, all across this blessed land,
Each, given a chance, to take a stance, answering a prayer, of our god's plan.
