Anyone can bring a troubled man down,
Helping him stand takes compassion.
A heart that commands you not to frown,
A mind that tames the wildest passion.
Seeing the world not from up above,
But from down below where he lies.
The best demonstration of true love,
Is seeing the world through his eyes.
Feeling the pain that corrodes his bones,
Hearing the despair in his cries.
Shielding his body from sticks and stones,
Saying the words that will help him rise.
Only then will you understand,
That his mistakes were not his own,
That the saving grace of a helping hand,
Means that none of us are all alone.
