ptsd---repost--- THE WORTH OF THE SLOWEST MAN

From a Fellow Veteran 04/28/2010---05/05/2015

THE WORTH OF THE SLOWEST MAN

A GOOD LEADER OF THE YAK
TRIES HARD NOT TO TURN HIS BACK
ON WEAKER ONES WHO FALL BEHIND
TO PREDATORS WAITING IN THE BLIND.

IT'S A HEFTY JOB TO SET THE PACE
TO MOVE ALONG WITHOUT THE RACE
YET FAST ENOUGH TO REACH A GOAL
BEFORE PAYING A MUCH STEEPER TOLL.

INDIVIDUALS OF A SPECIAL BREED
DROP BACK TO HELP THOSE IN NEED
SOMETHING'S DIFFERENT IN THEIR EYES
SOMETHING GODLY SOMETHING WISE.

TO MOVE AS FAST AS OUR SLOWEST MAN
GIVES US A CHANCE TO LEND A HAND
FOR WITHOUT THE WEAK FOR US TO CARE
WOULD COMPASSION YET LIVE ANYWHERE?

WE FORGET TO GOD WE ARE ALL AS BROTHERS
AS WE FEED UPON THE PAIN OF OTHERS
STAMPEDING MAKES THE VISION BLURRED
FOR ALL THE MEMBERS OF THE HERD.
