Journey

swan-pond-sunset-5-2017

It’s a heavy load to carry
A rough path for us to tread
And some who’ll trip us up
Wishing we were dead

There are some who are forced to carry
More than their due share
Weight is piled on high
Although it’s not fair

But there are some carried by clouds
Who turn a blind eye
When those so much worse off
Are casually passed right by

So if you see one over burdened
With troubles quite untold
Why don’t you stop to lend a hand
To lighten up their load

For we’re just travelers on this Earth
If our burden is great or small
But the journey is much more pleasant
When the load is shared by all

I read a great BBC article about those who helped during the recent terrorist attack in London.  Yeah, my eye is often on those running towards, not those running away, and definitely not those doing the damage.  There were people who said that it is times like these that we, everyone in the world, needs to stick together and become one.

There are some who use these events to try to divide us even deeper.  I think we need to use them to draw together.

      Thanks! I do think we are all in it together and don’t understand people who act like they are apart. We are all selfish to some degree, but I think most of us have enough compassion to at least occasionally hold out our hand to others.

      Thanks Britta! We are all in it together. Our actions can and do affect others even if we are unaware of it. Isn’t it better to be aware of it and make sure your actions cause a positive effect?

        We are never going to please everyone. Sometimes, we try our hardest and still hurt someone else. That said, if more people were aware of their actions, the world would be a better place.

          You are right. Sometimes it is impossible for us what to do, if anything, and sometimes some people cannot except help from us, and sometimes from anyone. But being aware and trying can make the world a better place.
