We all have fences that we erect.
For different reasons no doubt.
They some times are made to keep us in
And also to keep things out.
Years ago you would not see them built
All around your nice family home.
Then the yards were open to all,
And we admired the lawns that were mown.
The children would play hide and seek or tag
But some of the neighbors would just sit and frown
They are the ones who had fences so high..
Wanting their lives to be ever so private.
Never wanting to join in the everyday life
That was shared by the families they hate.
If we aren't just like them and think their same thoughts,
Then they have no use to be social with us.
What a shame that there are so many like them.
They find no use for making a move to discuss
The things that we all share and treasure,
Like families and health and just plain life!
Life sometimes tears down their fences,
They have troubles and sorrows and strife,
And it is then that their fences no longer hide them.
Then we as a neighbors can show we care.
To these lost souls who are in need of help,
Lend a hand of love and caring so rare..
To see the light in their eyes when they see,
That we are all in this world and you and me..
We can all join hands and help one another
There are so many ways to reach out..
It is time to be a big sister or brother
To all of those who have seen us with doubt.
Showing them love that goes beyond what they've known
Helping to lead them to a God that there.
Always He gives us a reason for living
He asks us to show them that we truly care.
Once they experience the joy for themselves
They will never build fences again..
