The holiest of homes is with us now.
The light that glorifies us all is brightly burning.
What causes does our God give to fight the fight
And not die lonely?
We're given what is needed, yet at times,
The truth is left to find.
And find it all we may not.
What happens when God does not get through?
Those of us, his children, who hate or suffer 
Or commit sins against our own.
Is he not there for them as well?
Do the poems and prayers apply to only those
Of us who believe?
How are those reached who are so troubled and
Wage war and kill and make others' live in angst?
I believe he is there for us all...
So how to reach those troubled souls?
Reach inside, take a breath and pray there is a way.
