One Hand

One hand

Reaches out

And pulls a lost soul from harm

While a thousand more

Go unspoken for

They say what good have you done

By saving just this one

It’s like whispering a prayer

In the fury of a storm.

But this heart

Still believes

That love and mercy still exist

While all the hatreds rage, and so many say

That love is all but pointless in madness such as this

It’s like trying to stop a fire

With the moisture from a kiss

But as long as one heart still holds on

Then hope is never really gone

And I hear them saying you’ll never change things

And no matter what you do it’s still the same thing

But I don’t do this to change the world.

I do this so this world we know

Never changes me.
