Read Poem: Practical Person, by Perry Terrell

Feeding the hungry
Clothing the naked
Visiting the prisoners,
because some are still innocent,
Is a glorious way to
Express love.
The depth and quality
Of ones love to others
Will reveal who a person
Really is.

If a person cannot
Share love for others,
Feelings and compassion
Will decline and fail
In the function that
It should fulfill
Which leads to
Mass murders
And blatant
For the life and
Of everyone
We come in contact with.

People must stop
Hating and killing each other
It’s okay
If we all live to
A ripe old age.
