Humanity's Cry

Lost to the world

In darkness they wait

As the water rose higher

Wondering what is their fate

*

And the world stood still

People holding their breath

Collectively praying

For life over death

*

Twelve boys and their mentor

Down deep in a cave

Huddled together

Being so brave

*

Then the world became one

For a time we were blind

No barriers, no fences

Just a mission to find

*

And all who had feelings

All who had heart

Felt compassion and suffering

Each day from the start

*

After over a week

Hope was slipping away

Then light in the darkness

Good news of the day

*

It would take several more

To get the boys out

Our prayers were answered

You could hear the world shout

*

Why do we wait

For disaster to fall

To remember God’s rule

There’s no difference at all

*

To show God’s love

So others might see

God’s spirit in you

God’s spirit in me

*

Pray we learn

And not turn a blind eye

Let “together in peace”

Be humanity’s cry

A New Rhythm for My Soul

As a child there were a few
That taught me right from wrong
But good and bad were upside down
Confusion was the song
A different beat inside my head
Developed through the years
The tempo changed more like jazz
To run from all my fears
Slowly I became aware
As notes fell into place
The spirit working in my life
To create a sacred space
People places things were changed
A higher power goal
Embracing love around me
A new rhythm for my soul
