Poem: Just A Little Yeast…

It’s another Independence Day season, and we thought to share with you again this lovely piece as a reminder that your contribution towards a better society is worth it no matter how little.

Never discount the little you have to offer, for evil triumphs when good men do nothing. Please enjoy it!

Evil triumphs where good men do nothing!
-Edmund Burke

When ‘ordinary’ men underrate the power of their ‘little’ contribution, they quit trying. However, evil triumphs when good men do nothing, and what is required for our desired change starts with little things…

Like …

Few good men
to speak the truth

Few praying men
to stand in the gap …

Few upright men
to uphold the arm of justice

Few hopeful people
to dream of a brighter tomorrow…

Little noble acts
Little brave tendencies
Little words of faith
Little deeds of kindness

Jesus told them still another parable: “The Kingdom of heaven is like this. A woman takes some yeast and mixes it with a bushel of flour until the whole batch of dough rises. Matthew 13:33 GNT 

Small men
resisting inequality
Ordinary men
standing against corruption

Common men
rising against oppression

Everyday people
insisting on justice

Few strong voices
