Just a Drive Up the Hill

by johnchang

Waiting for the laundry to dry..

A street woman, her kids and a dog asked me for a ride.

A bit concerned I let the ragtag bunch in..

Watching them getting into my nice clean car

Up the hill we went

While it felt good to do something to help..

I couldn't help but wonder

Was I really making a difference?

Or just putting a band-aid on an open wound?

Meanwhile I realized..

That I had left my friend at the laundry mat

Rushing back, it was too late..

He had already walked home.

Who do we help? How do we decide?

I wish the answer was easy.

But in the end it's up to each of us..

To choose our journeys
