Hand of Help

Written by Diya Padiyar, 16, India

They say,

when the world is suffering

we need shielding

But what we also need

is soothing!


What we need the most

is an extended hand of help


The question isn't about

who is mighty- the sword or the pen?

Because the world need every bit

Of support by men and women


What we need the most

Is an extended hand of help


The hands of those

Who can help by protecting,

And the hands of the others

Who can help by supporting


We need the hands

Wearing gloves, soaked in blood

We need the hands

Soaked in paint, painting a potrait


All we need, is what you have to offer

All we need, is an extended hand of help


Because in this battle of suffering

We're all trying to heal

And we're all healers.
