Social Capital, influence, reputation
Connections to neighbors, family and strangers
The way we rely on one another, and
How often we speak to each other,
A network of people in business and recreation
Sharing ideas and gaining information,
Have bonds, over time, been broken?
Have some neighbors not even spoken?
Some in a desperate need for success
May cling to a personal loneliness,
Most Families no longer eat together,
Most neighbors no longer casually discuss the weather,
Over time, our community has come to this,
What will it become if this problem is dismissed?
A world where if you’ve fallen down,
Although there will be quite a crowd,
Not one face will have turned to see
A little social capital is all you need
Because success always includes the other
The friend, the boss or the brother
Whether church, the club or the den
The human relationship important has been,
The comfort in knowing that someone is there,
The happiness you get in a family that cares,
Human kind recognizes a brotherhood
In a society working to increase the good!
