What Would You Do

What would you do if you saw someone today
Who needed help, whose life's in decay
What would you do if you stopped and stared
As others passed by too busy or scared
Would you take time to encourage a downtrodden soul
Or would you keep walking, stuck on cruise control
What would you do if you saw someone in need
Would you walk on by while they silently plead
What would you do if they looked to you 
Would you keep going or would you come through
It is always the right thing to give a helping hand
For one day it could be you sitting in no man's land

    Excellent write here April...I am one who is always looking to lend a hand. What matters is what is on the inside. That's what I see. :o)

    PS You can see what a big deal it is for street people when you talk with them. However some people want too be left alone

    Wonderfully inspiring. One of my favorite songs is Give Me Your Eyes by Brandon Heath, a Christian artist. This poem has the same message

    Excellent message written here....I too share the same thoughts from time to time. Reminds me of the tv show "what would you do" will be surprised by some of ppls reactions to certain situations dealing with strangers in need. Enjoyed
