 What Shall We Render

Here, where you today stopped by
To read one more, maybe to try
To simplify what you've been given
A life just short of things yours giving

A handout more a blessing to
A homeless soul who paid his dues
Who fell from grace in life once had
Hunger picks apart to bad

The bag lady that use to be
A Countess once imaginary
Who did all she could do for them
Children hers, times better then

Lonely fate awaits them both
Once high life today just hope
Plays in mind, breaks what's left
Of will once had in it accept

How about if for a minute
You gave to one of time and in it
You'd hold their hand if just in words
Imagine what you render serves

A broken heart mends with you there
A smile again from frowns now bare
What use to be, what once was theirs
If just today someone would pair

Paying mind to reap not sow
Giving less and more in tow
Unto yourself of things you need
Ignoring needs to intercede

Some time of yours to man a spoon
To serve someone in life that looms
In life, near death at shelter near
Your presence there removing fear

You see dear friends who stopped on by
The world needs you, bring change to tries
At failed attempts that never left
The ground of those just shy of breath


What shall we render if just ourselves? If just today
