Frighten, alone and sadden
We pass from one moment to the next
Longing for understanding
Hoping for acceptance

Hidden deep within the child
A voice yearning to be heard
Look at me, I am here
Do you not see me?

Alone even in a crowd
Locked deep within a dark prison
We wait for that moment to escape
Does anyone care?

For a child the world is a vast void
Not knowing what lies ahead
Even their own backyard
A jungle to navigate.

Like that child we too
Can be lost in our own world
With just a few kind words
The world is alive again.

Come join our moment in time
Let us make the darkness vanish
A kind word, a smile
Reach out your hand….

    This would be excellent in a church bulletin and on the website.
    Mission statement- you totally have to be involved with one, one day. Such deep, tender humanity in your writing. The love comes through.
