LOVE in protest

The discontented world says:
A good fellow donated his home to the destitute,
to save them from dying of hunger and danger;
He did this for the sake of brotherly love.
Love beckons on love:
The poor also need love,
a heart full of love and affection,
that knows the plights of the poor.
But why is the world unhappy
even when she can't give love to the poor?
We all need love to live,
without love, there is no happiness.
However, in the face of this protest,
I will continue to work for love,
because I'm impelled by the love of Christ:
God's presence is felt in the suffering and the needy.
We call on our society to revisit the needs of the poor,
for they too must try to show love,
following the footsteps of Jesus Christ,
Father and friend of the poor and suffering brothers.

  1. I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely price sufficient for me. Personally, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will likely be much more helpful than ever before.
