Going through my drafts I came upon this . Two verses were used in another article, the words are now all awaiting their turn for sharing. It's the thoughts of a leader injured on the job and an organisation's determination to avoid association with the liability. Everything which is not positive gets hidden in the corporate world if possible. Injuries on the job are not noted when staff are urged not to make police reports, or to keep their jobs- be silent! ISO and OSHA standards are of no value if not enforced.
Fear can keep the 'thoughtful strong' quiet and make the weak strong in understanding. No admonishments, just acceptance. If life is a game at work the stakes are higher than the prize.
Do you leave your men when they fall
Do you leave your men when they fall in battle Do you take them to the front yet walk away when they fall their eyes are open and heart beating still do you cross over turn away when they touch the ground Do you feel their pain as the air lifts them updoes the sharp gasp send you reeling Do you leave and turn away when they fall ... for you Do you feel their eyes departing Can you feel the pausewhen life is suspended when the break in the wind sees blood pouring out Can you feel the heart beating as it watches you depart Can you feel the hope gone from your own hands Yes ..your soldier has fallenfrom the battle field up in front from the line of the march where he gave All his comrades see him fall to his pain no one held him back from the line of attack..... Do you feel my painas I call out in the night the battlefront never lets me go looking up to the sun with my eyes open wide fallen , but alive my heart is beating. Do you feel my anguish and walk overwalk away despair ...leaving life on the ground once revered Can you feel your own place in the battle of 'lost hope' Can you spare your soldier .. he did work.
What do you stand for when you cannot stand? Who fights on behalf of those who take on the Goliath of the corporate world. Be kind, be just, be fair, and whatever you do have a heart which beats blood and not dollars and cents!
There is no feel good end filled with lollipops.... but a good feeling in endurance.
In peace.. it goes out into the world now.. released!
