It’s hard to know

Witness Protection
When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?

Of one thing, I am sure;
It’s hard to know
Who’ll rescue you when trouble knocks;
It may be friend; it may not;
It’s hard to know;
Sometimes from pure strangers,
Our help comes;
When the going is tough
We may be surprised
That a hand from nowhere
And never before seen
May be the one to set us free;
It’s hard to know;
Can you be sure
Who’ll be there to bury you
On that day
When you take your final leave?
It’s hard to know.
It could be friends;
Or strangers through and through;
It’s simply hard to know;
So while you take care of precious friends
Do not forget the strangers too.
