Some people try so hard
Some people just need so much
And they need it much more than you ever will
Can you then, not be at least a little generous
And give them what they want
As charity, if your fears won’t permit you to, in any other way
Even if they steal it from you….my friend yesterday walked into a police station for some government work and told me later nearly gleefully that
There was a real lock-up! And it even had two chors sitting inside it! And they were both skinny, scrawny little men.
No one dreams of growing up and becoming a thief. You only steal when you need something so much and can’t think of any other way of getting it.
Can you then be scared of someone who needs resort to thievery?
And so, if someone steals attention, love, friendship away from you….stop and think for a minute…..just what their life must be like if they need to plunder these away from other people who have found ways to earn it on their own. Poor thing, poor miserable thing…..I would hate to be that person. And I think I really can afford to give a little, I have so much of my own. I’m blessed enough that I can afford to be charitable. Its got nothing to do with weakness. Live a little, laugh a little, relent a little, remember what it is like to be human and be kind to those who are scareder of life than you are.
