What is good, true and hoped for?

What is true, what is good, what is hoped for,

Do you hold these questions in your heart,

Do you ask yourself what is of your making,

Your choosing,

I am pulled in so many directions at once

At home with loved ones needing to be fed

My town that struggles with school, violent eruptions

With people confined within walls of hatred and dispair,

The country unraveling from divides fueled by those who wish their own controls

Their own selfish wins,

My own challenges of what to say to souls in distress

Am I servant enough to do what is most needed,

Can I put one more oar in the water with others doing the same,

To pull the boat of democracy around towards

What is true, good and hoped for?
