A poem by Becky Simpson
Everybody Everywhere

Everybody everywhere,
No matter what one's station,
Has moments of deep loneliness
And quiet desperation,
For this lost and lonely feeling
Is inherent in mankind –

It is just the Spirit speaking,
As God tries again to find
An opening in the “worldly wall”
Man builds against God’s touch,
For man feels self sufficient
And he does not need God much.
Hence he vainly goes on struggling
To find some explanation
For these disturbing lonely moods
Of inner isolation.

But the answer keeps eluding him,
For in his selfish finite mind,
He does not even recognize
That he cannot ever find
The reason for life’s emptiness
Unless he learns to share
The problems and the burdens
That surround him everywhere –

But when his eyes are opened
And he looks with love at others,
He begins to see not strangers
But understanding brothers.
So open up your hardened hearts
And let God enter in –

He only wants to help you
A new life to begin,
And every day’s a good day
To lose yourself in others.
Anytime is a good time
To see mankind as brothers,
And this can only happen
When you realize it’s true
That everyone needs someone,
And that someone is you.

Love You – Becky
