Good People

By W.S. Merwin

Read "Good People"

If you saw a person, whether you knew them or not, and they needed help would you help them? If they were bleeding on the ground, or in times of need, would you stop the bleeding? As times grow older people grow colder. With as many things going on in the world today, sometimes it is hard to find the goodness in people. Some people are so focused on themselves that caring for other people isn't always a priority. In this poem by W.S. Merwin called "Good People" he shares his words on the people in the world today that cause people pain, and don't do anything about it. After you hear these four fire stanzas from Kirstin Kortberg you will be moved.

"the animals the animals staring from the end of the world"
