The Advocate

This is not about
rescue, so as to feel good
when the child lights up with a
smile.

This is not about
the comfort of compassion.
This is hard work,
struggling with ripped families
and children in clouds of pain,
anger dancing round their heart
in the turmoil of a world
made crazy. This is caring,
yes, but also what is just,
what should be demanded.

It takes love
and a certain measure of courage,
and in the simplest act
of person helping person,
it becomes extraordinary.
