Deep despondency will ever be
A human being’s worst enemy!
It clamps the mind with vicious hold,
Debilitates both weak and bold.

Imperative to claw right out
When pushed down from without,
Make sure when at these twists and bends,
You’re firmly encircled by your friends!

God’s plan is for us all to see,
We’re part of one big family!
So don’t feel blue, don’t hesitate,
Don’t ever friends underestimate!

For a good deed done, a favor return,
And you’ll be sure delighted to learn,
That a chain reaction you’ve set in motion,
You can heal the world with the power of devotion!

    Lovely poem on the importance of friends and family. And also that it is ‘in giving that we receive’. Praise God for giving us the Holy Family as a model of what a loving family should be.
