Allow the Invisible to be Seen!

by Martha Leonard

Many parts of the body
make up the whole
what treats the physical
may not heal the soul

The exterior appears normal
with only a glance
look deeper, feel stronger
please take the chance

We need community
not more exclusion
the first observation
may be only illusion

The eyes tell a story
many won't want to see
they speak of affliction
the loss of what used to be

It's in taking a moment
offering presence and care
that Life has real value
though burdens we bear

Knowledge brings insight
understanding a key
we mutually grow
into all we can be

Let's offer respect
trusting facts to be true
the silent suffering extends
now far beyond a few

So, please listen and learn
let's work as a team
we bring hope and a purpose-

Allow the invisible to be seen!
