Poem: Community Support

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

This poem "Community Support" is a poem I wrote to express how proud I am of my community for coming together to help someone in need.

Two small children from our community are battling the fight of Lukemia.

It breaks my heart to know these parents must face this struggle, but this day was filled with numerous activities geared towards raising money to help.

It was free to attend & shuttle service was provided.

They had numerous raffle ticket drawings. One for a 2000 Harley Road King Motorcycle with 34,000 miles on it.

The raffle ticket for the Harley costs $25.00 each.

Community Support

A whole community gathering around

digging deep in their pockets,

to put a smile on a face of worry

for two small children

ages nine and fifteen battling the disease of leukemia.


From feeding one’s belly

to quenching one’s thirst

or attire to wear,

no donation too small to accept

to relieve a bit of worry,

facing the parent’s hearts

as they face this struggle each day.

Nothing can dim the light

that shines from within.
