Treasure Island

David Harris

(18 June 1945 / Bradfield, England)

A Big Softie


I am a big softie
when it comes to
every living thing.
I would not purposely hurt
any animal or human being.
I hold out my arms
to comfort any injured living creature
that I might find
whether it be large or small.
Everything needs love and comfort
at sometime or another
and that is left
to big softies like me.

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
