The Good Samaritan

The Good Samaritan.

Give to him who has not.
If two coats you had.
Give one to the other lad.

If food you have, share.
The best to him.
Who is always there.

The poor are always with us.
The needy, down and out.
Give to them.
You go without.

Taking more than your need.
Is stealing, it will lead.
To others starving.
They also must feed.

Not only your next of kin.
The stranger, ask him in.
Have pity, see to his wants.
He is also a human being.

By turning away.
You condemn him to lay.
To lie down and die.
To cry and sigh.

To reject a plea.
To refuse your aid.
Is the same as killing, he said..

Look for ways to help the other man.
Give him freedom, do not ban.
Open up your stores.
Give to him your hordes.

Let it be known.
That you give, not loan.
Nothing expect in return.

You will gain your reward.
With peace of mind.
You will find.
Life is to help.
Those left behind.
