Driving up the street I came across a woman begging for food to eat.
As I moved along I passed by an exhausted and struggling mother
Sitting out in the hot scorching sun waiting for the bus while she burned.
Further down I saw an homeless man
Living under the bypass
My tears began to fall, when I thought to myself I am so blessed.
Before going to bed I wondered about those three
Wondering where were their families during their of times of need.
I am not rich but I have an roof over my head
And I sleep comfortably every night in my bed
On that night I was restless
Thinking about those three
Knowing they needed me.
I know what it's like sitting in the hot scorching sun
Taking care of a family when the food level is down to none.
Sleeping underneath an bypass I have yet to come
Please sweet Jesus pass me on that one.
Most of us are just inches away of
The poverty line each day.
For many of us we consistently pray.
We pray for health, strength and hope
No longer for the need to cope.
Most of the rich only help themselves
They feed on the poor and make their lives a living hell.
I often wonder do they pray or
If they would come face to face with these people
What would they say?
Paying forward is something we all must do
We must help someone less fortunate than us to make it through.
To just help one person in need
We will plant a seed for them to survive
It is better to reach out than watch them die
A seed that will continually grow and before we know it
a World Of Poverty......No More.
Share what you possess
God will see your faith and kindness
And take care of the rest.

Mother, mother, mother there are too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother there are too many of you dying
Now you know we have got to find a way to bring some lovin here today
Oh, What's Going On!
Woo ah mercy, mercy, me
Ah things ain't what they use to be
What happened to us? What happened to the days of communities coming together feeding one another by raising food together. Women sewing clothing and distributing them throughout the community for the ones less fortunate. I see so many women buying instead of sewing clothing it's ridiculous! Oh, I have not forgotten about you men! WASTE, is all I see when so many people are out struggling. Men, would go fishing or hunting and distribute the meat throughout their community. Things have not changed so drastically that we have forgotten where we come from. Our purpose in this world is to help one another; but we have gotten weak and oh do we play the blame game! Listen, these politicians (white and black) make promises most of us will never see; but, here is where common sense should take place. Politicians are wealthy or all out rich, most of them have priviledges we will never see or experience and with me that's okay. I could care less about vacationing in Monte Carlo and other exotic places. We need to get back to the basics beginning with helping someone else. I know people these days become offended when approached by others for help. For some reason, our pride stay in the way; but we are decaying and our rotting flesh has yet to be laid to rest. We cover it up with designer cologne and clothing; but, the stinch is still there.
The Churches are even no longer a place to help their fellow man; but quick to say "What Would Jesus Do!" Don't play Jesus! Jesus, walked among the poor and less fortunate.He washed their feet! He was about service! He furnished wine and food to feed many. These days you can't get a Bible toting Christian to give you the time of day unless it's for an publicized charity. They look down on someone because they themselves feel they are saved and better than someone less fortunate. Anyone professing Jesus Christ, but not loveth his own brother and sister enough to help them is..... poor in spirit and will not, and I repeat, will not, enter into gates of heaven! I am sick of these Churches running themselves like regular businesses: money, money, money, money! The Church is about God's business which is to take care of souls and those who are less fortunate. Not! Fancy building lined with gold, auditoriums so large they have at least 10 large flat screen monitors. The preachers living better than the President of USA or Kings and Queens. This is NOT the humbled spirit for in which Jesus possessed while here on earth and even today.
There is no good reason why we see so much destitution here in this country or around the world. No amount of money could buy Jesus. So Churches, why are you being bought to serve the rich man and his conditions of getting into Heaven?! I'm sick of all of you, preachers, politicians and wannabes. You want to be rich, you want to be more than you are not; but, too be rich in spirit is all you need and you will not aquire this wealth until you get off your pampered bottoms and serve the ones less fortunate than you!
