Title: "Thoughts In Verse"
By George A. Wiens

WHEN NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE


YOU OFTEN FEEL DISCOURAGED
WHEN NO,ONE SEEMS TO CARE.
YOU SOMETIMES GIVE UP TRYING,
AND USUALLY GIVE UP PRAYER.

LIFE'S BURDENS MAY SEEM SO HEAVY,
THAT THE LOAD YOU CANNOT BEAR,
SO WHY SHOULD YOU KEEP ON TRYING,
WHEN NO SEEMS TO CARE.

YOU FEEL THAT THERE IS NO REASON
TO TRY TO GET AHEAD,
AND SINCE NO ONE CARES ABOUT YOU,
THAT YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE DEAD.

YOU CANNOT FACE YOUR PROBLEMS,
SO YOU TRY TO RUN AWAY,
BUT YOU CAN STILL REMEMBER,
AND THEY WILL NOT GO AWAY.

YOU MAY TRY TO FIND YOUR COURAGE
IN A BOTTLE, OR IN "DOPE",
BUT SOON EVEN QUIT TRYING,
FOR YOU FEEL THAT THERE'S NO HOPE.

YOU NEED SOMEONE TO TALK TO.
SOMEONE TO SAY "I CARE".
SOMEONE TO BEAR YOUR BURDENS.
SOMEONE TO HEAR YOUR PRAYER.

THAT "SOMEONE" IS NOW JUST WAITING
FOR YOU TO CALL HIS NAME,
FOR YOU TO ASK HIS GUIDANCE,
TO LET HIM BEAR YOUR SHAME.

THAT SOMEONE WHO CARES IS "JESUS".
HE WANTS TO GUIDE YOUE WAY,
BUT' YOU MUST ASK HIS GUIDANCE.
PLEASE, WON'T YOU ASK TODAY?

HE WALKED LIFE'S PATH BEFORE YOU.
HE CARRIED EVERY LOAD
THAT YOU MIGHT BEAR, AND THEN SOME,
AS HE TRAVELLED LIFE'S LONG ROAD.

HE EVEN LET THEM KILL HIM
SO THAT YOU DON'T NEED TO PAY
THE PRICE OF DEATH THAT FACES
EACH SINNER ON JUDGEMENT DAY.

JUST ASK HIM FOR FORGIVENESS
AND GUIDANCE IN YOUR LIFE.
THEN YOU CAN START ALL OVER
WITH A NEW, AND WORTH-WHILE LIFE.
