Somewhere, not within an  earshot

not within the four corners of the room

not within the reach of  fingers

not within a grasp of a feeling,

not within an understanding

not where an eye could reach seeing,

not even existing in a make believe world


the wailing of the orphans ,

the sobs of the abandoned ,

the plea of the unborn child,

the shrieking of the frightened,

the loneliness of the forsaken,

the strangeness of feeling of being haunted by disaster,

the awful experience of failure,

the need to belong,

the struggle to let go of the  unforgiving , 

the breach of  confining rules to be free

the will to be sane in a pretend world, 

the scourge of a  pride,

the embattled courage of the unrecognized

the will to survive at the brink of death,


Somewhere, one is deaf of the cares in life to hear

one is numb of  pain to feel , one is self engrossed to care

one is  wounded to struggle , 

one is blind of the fleeting pleasures in life to be sensitive,

one is occupied of earthly possessions to empathize,

one is imprisoned of  pride to be humble,

one is lamed with fear to speak up the truth and be happy


Somewhere, a humble heart can see,

generosity empowers unity , a touch can heal, 

a smile bequeaths new assurance , 

a call sends  relief, 

soothing words lighten the toil, 

a visit opens new perspective, 

a camaraderie of friendship brings out the best in you,  

a prayer transcends everything to beauty 

and LOVE aims to perfection ...
