Angel

September 17, 2013

Touch, don’t teach. Pray, don’t preach. Heal, don’t hate.

By Raj
Joy of Giving

Touch, don’t teach. Pray, don’t preach

It is so easy to close doors,
It is so easy to shut eyes,
It is so easy to believe that…
The sufferer is paying for his sins,
It is all so easy to leave it to God.
Because we are misers.
We have no love to share,
We have no smile to give,
We only seek love, need joy,
We can only ask, ask, ask…
And find rationale for not
Reaching out.
The Poorest one is one…
Who can not even lend an ear…
To someone’s woe.
The Weakest one is one
Who can not even touch
The forehead of a wounded man.
Blind are we if we can not
Look in to the eyes of dying.
Did Lord ask us to judge…
Those who are sobbing and crying.
Touch, don’t teach.
Pray, don’t preach,
Heal, don’t hate
Feel, don’t frown.
Angel… oh !

    Very truly quoted!!!

    Heart touching lines.

    Please don’t generalize my sayings.

    Now a days everyone is moving in a endless race where wishes or desires have no end to it.

    No one has the time to listen other’s pain and if by chance if someone shares his /her pains then we listen and afterwords either we tend to forget or ignore the same at that very moment.

    We need to understand one thing that the more we love and care for others, you do get the reward which is intangible. And on the above we get the utmost satisfaction which you can’t express in words.

    You can only feel about it……………….!!!

    .Thanks for sharing..
