When the World Wept

When the world wept,
Its tears filled the earth.
The oceans overflowed
And the lakes turned into rivers.
When the world wept,
Some people cried out for help
Others prayed
A few ignored it all
While some rejoiced in the life they had lived.
When the world wept,
Some people found sorrow in their own lives
Others saw money to made
A few united to help others
While some found despair.
When the world wept,
Once all the people looked around, they saw for the first time…a community.
Some shared their own stories to help others.
Others shared their gifts and talents to provide care
A few collected and gathered many, many more people who united in prayer
While others jumped in to console those in despair.
When the world wept,
It did not seem so big.
It no longer seemed lonely.
It became a family.
When the world wept,
The people found beauty within each other.
When the world wept,
It finally realized that it held great power.
Power it always had to defeat anything.
Power to change as long as its people united as one.
