Struggle

 

the caterpillar

inched its way up the path

over the stones and cracks

a tuft of grass

appeared in its tracks

what was driving it on?

where did it have to go?

where did the urgency stem from?

LIFE beckoned it forward…

a day of promise that turned sadly into clouds

the day began well

and then all was hell

why does someone have to rain on my parade

why do I  find myself betrayed

why do people hate so much

why has humanity lost its touch

what is gained from such disdain

why can’t we be happy with each other again

begin anew …think the positive not just for a few

Anawim, the poor,  to God  cry out…

Please,  please hear our shouts

“I’m on the bottom…nowhere to turn…

Help me to discern…with your love there is no earn

Keep the awareness of YOU …God of LIFE…within  us strong

Do not let me capitulate to the wrong

so alone I feel… the pain inside reels

But I know you see and feel my human deal

feelings crashing into the rocks of my mind

God, you know for YOU I pine…

The outcasts of the LORD…To whom do we go?

The outcasts of the LORD…from YOU all love flows…

YOU are there for us… the psalmsist writes

Thank YOU for sending the surviving kite!
