Reaching Out

I feel your pain,
With every tear.
I see your face,
Mapped out with fear.

If there’s a hand
Can you still reach it?

You walk in shadows,
The pace is slow.
You walk in circles,
Nowhere to go.

Hold out your hand
Trust we won’t breach it

A mountain to climb,
Each and every day.
Stripped of your pride,
Hope slipping away.

Take a hand
You can teach it

You feel alone,
That no-one cares.
You grow hungry,
The food is scarce.

Lend a hand
Don’t just preach it!
