Grace Awaits 5-20-12


A little child is hungry,
but mother's flying high -
illegal drugs and alcohol
as many beers go by.

A little child is beaten,
but no one hears his cry.
the beatings simply never quit
as many tears go by.

A little child is confused
by yet another guy,
with screaming, fights and arguments
as many fears go by.

A little child becomes a teen,
and sees his best friend die -
the only life the child knows
as many peers go by.

A little child grows in greed.
The world knows not why,
but he becomes quite popular
as many cheers go by.

Another child goes to church
in Sunday suit and tie.
Through love, correction, learns respect
as many jeers go by.

But God sees faith and righteousness
while others steal and lie -
yet grace awaits with patience as
the many years go by...
