The Glorious Minority by Ralph S. Cushman

peonies_2015They helped everyone his neighbor; and everyone said to his brother,                                                 Be of good courage!   Isaiah 41:6                                                                              

The Glorious Minority  


There are people who carry life’s burdens,

Their own and some others beside;

There are people who stand in their places,

And who stand there whatever betide.


When the Kingdom is calling for workers,

Or some cause is seeking supporters,

Or the city is crying for men,

These people will answer just then.


There are two kinds of people –

you know them,

As you journey along on life’s track-

The people who take your strength

From you,

And others who put it all back.

by Ralph Spaulding Cushman
