In the distance/ change

Updated on October 4, 2011

In our life trials , we focus on the path in front of us and getting to our destination. We are so fused on it we never take a step back to look at what else is in this world, or who else is in this world. We never stop to think about the people less fortunate than us. All we ever think is how can we help ourselves . What about everyone else?

I think it's time to stop and think how can I help somene else. Can I afford to give them the last dollar in my pocket? Could i take time out of my busy schedule to go help someone else? Are their people in worst conditions than me?

It time to stop thinking of ourselves and help someone else.

In The Distance

In the distance a boy cries for his mother , while a mother cries for help.

In the distance a little girl is lost, and a man is starving.

Can you hear it? Listen realy close.

They are screaming in the distance, but your to busy to pay attention.

In the distance a little girl is losing her innocents, and a father downs a bottle .

In the distance an innosent loses their life , and a child is destoying theirs.

Can you hear it ? Is it your child?

You will never know because you can't stop to pay attention.


Stop take a look around your town. What really goes on there? What can you do to help?
