The Need To Be

There is within each of us A desire to succeed, A yearning to be loved And a longing to fill a need. But it’s the deeper part of us That feels someone's pain, As we extend our hand Not for fortune or fame. With our first breath Our morals and values begin, The lessons we grow up with Score our lose or win. Compassion is not a given But a priceless work of art, As love is a treasure Buried deep within our heart. We freely reach out a hand To help a stranger or a friend, Because love is the only first aid Our heart needs to mend. There is within each of us A desire to be, Someone special to another Where I turns to we.
