We Can Do Something

A Poem

We Can Do Something

As I sat in my bed

My mind faded to another place

A place that I knew so little about

It is often looked upon in disgrace

“Go get a job”

I recalled a man yell

To the poor lady in the corner

A phrase she knew very well

Why didn’t I go up to her

Why didn’t I ask

How can I assist you

The woman in me would do any task

But I didn’t go up to her

I didn’t even look

Why do we think

We have the ability to read someone like a book

Who knows what she might be going through

Who knows how she got here

What we should know for sure

Is that she shouldn’t be living in fear

We can do something

All of us together

To help the people in need

Resist the cold weather

We can donate

Or offer our assistance

Even just talking

Helps them fight their resistance
