Please Pray, Today

He’s 8 years old:
He shouldn’t have
Abnormalities on the brain,
It’s inhumane.
Children shouldn’t suffer
Like this.
Life is unnecessarily cruel
When youthful
Exuberance is squashed
Into submission,
Sedated for scans and tests
As the beast is assessed.

Over-tired, stressed parents,
Scared byond endurance,
Watching their boy regress
As doctors guess
At the nature of the beast
Attacking his brain,
Physically and emotionally,
Spacially and socially
Changing him
Before their eyes –
He is their precious boy
Not a research toy.

Join me to pray
For a treatable cause,
For a miraculous healing
Through our believing.
Pray our all-powerful God
Guides the analysts
And for rapidness
Of medical diagnosis.
Pray a boy is returned
Back to his family
Where he should be
With every capacity
Fully intact
To live a full life,
To grow and mature
And to feel secure.

Please – pray, today.

The Grey Ones

It’s cold outside but the stove is lit,
It’s lovely and warm in here.
I pity those sleeping rough tonight
As people walk quickly by;
There but for the grace of God, go you or I.
The winter weather of storms, high tides,
Flooding, gales and snow –
I pity those sleeping rough tonight
As people walk quickly by;
There but for the grace of God, go you or I.

The invisible population,
Few see them, most look through them.
Social outcasts, foreign migration
No fixed abode, no benefit system.

It’s cold outside and snow is blowing,
It’s lovely and dry in here.
I pity those in the hedges tonight
As people drive swiftly by;
There but for the grace of God, go you or I.
It’s not a night to be left outside,
Snowdrifts, wind and ice –
I pity those in the hedges tonight
As people drive swiftly by;
There but for the grace of God, go you or I.

The unfortunate generation,
The grey people, much maligned
Socially compromised, chastened,
Out of sight, out of mind.
