A Helping Hand

A tornado can ruin homes
Destroy a whole complete town,
People there come together
None are seen with a frown.

A hurricane comes along
Not one business it didnt touch,
Yet again all comes together
Anger, resentment you dont see much.

A family member strays away
Chaos for everyone now there,
Nobody comes together now
Its like we just dont care.

Where did things go so wrong
When familys have lost love,
No longer cared about feelings
Nor went beyond and above.

How have we forgotten
What made us who we are,
That without family suport
We'd never gotten this far.

So perhpas its simple
Practice just as we preach,
Rather than to strangers
Make it family which to reach.

Bring back old standards
Listen for once to the man above,
Rekindle those family values
By giving hugs and true love.
