The last shall be first

This much I know – the last shall be first,
the angry ones need love the most,
and the bigot, to be heard and understood

Share joy with the joyful,
be there for the sorrowful,
and sometimes just let the lost be

The helper first needs to learn
the poor already want to help themselves,
and victims wish they could but couldn’t

That there is no single rule,
no silver bullet, no theory of everything;
only one way, certain and narrow
