The unhelped helping hand


You lend them your ears


and you dry their tears


You hold their hand


and listen to them to try and understand


You let them vent


And to a certain extent


You wish for once that it could just be you


The one having ears lent


The one having tears dried


The one being held and comforted too


The one being told


“Everything is going to be okay, I love you”

    it's so hard
    in you is a light of empathetic goodness
    you feel only natural to share with the world..;
    and yet
    every time you need a helping hand
    the world teaches you just how cruel it can be...
    tells you
    only the cruel thrive in this world
    a few of us, find strength enough to prevail
    to be who we are, and not
    what the world wants us to be
    eventually, we're granted a chance
    to find others like us
    and have our kindness be rewarded
    until then, it's a tough lonely journey
    stay strong! choose your people carefully
    thanks for sharing
