If Left to Burn…/Aid each other

If only disasters created


Instead of momentarily fusing together


To solve a current crisis

Merely to once again


Until another should arrive

That’s when we

Knock on doors

Pledge funds

Bake cakes

Shake hands

Shift sides

Comfort friends

Hold family dear

Running to be heroes

Waiting for catastrophe to transpire

In order to assist

Where’s the prevention?

Idea’s heard, spread, and shared

Can, will, and do

Resolve the majority of hardships

Before they happen

Granted we can’t stop them all

Even those who suffer from depression

We can aid, support, and work to improve





And dare I say enemies

For even I struggle

Left in the dark

When there is no light to reach for.
