For it was the early morning starts to a dead end job with minimum pay
The endless calls for 'dinner is ready!''
The kids expected a divine roast with all the trimmings to add
Instead they met with the same disappointment of a little less than
It was the endless walk from the job to the bus stop
The need to buy better shoes to endure the walk
But having not enough to meet the need
For it was the annoyance of being sprayed with dirty street water by a passing car
Patiently waiting for the little man to turn green for the road to be crossed
It was the letters through the post, reminders of endless debts to pay
It was the sheer audacity to rise up against the game of the system
For it was the need for a better tomorrow to overcome the lesser yesterday
It was the empty stares through a clear glass window
At the skies that held so much
It was the need to be like so many on the big screen
That lead to the fall to realise the rise was in being yourself
It was the mistakes of yesterday that highlighted the promises of tomorrow
It was the lack of Him that accentuated the need for Him
It was the constant question of ''why?''
That lead to the answer ''because''
It was the questioning of ''what is'' that answered ''I Am''
It was the need for a better tomorrow that lead
To finding early morning starts for a good reason
The dinner call to be had around the table with a sumptuous supply
The empathy at seeing another sprayed with dirty rain water
The letters through the post littered with postcards and good news
The encounter with self belief against status quo
The embrace of the past to help shape a better tomorrow
The acceptance of being true to oneself
For it was the acceptance of simply being
Some want more than others, some have less than. Some have what is not needed, and some give away the essentials. Some have bruises all over after taking a beating, and some preen and prance being in a totally perfect place.
But no matter the place, no matter the journey, no matter the mistake and no matter the heartbreak, we are, simply human. Living in a world that is very human, but we are not to be a part of the statistic.
Stand up, even if your limping, the ground is now beneath you and not under you. Need crutches? At least you sought some help and support.
Sprinting? You are way ahead, keep running, but don't forget to lend a hand. Either way, if your eye is on the Sparrow, the ''Why?'' and ''Because'' and ''What is?'' and ''I Am'' then makes a little more sense.
