I am thirsty for Thy 
Righteousness, oh Lord
For that
I Thee, on my knees 
The words of Thy wisdom do not
Deny me 
To quench my thirst I wish   
In this
Endless desert of injustice
Thy law I miss!

    May God hear your cry and quench your thirst! When Does God almighty hear your cry is the question I constantly ask. Because "Endless desert of injustice" widens every single second. Beautiful thoughts once again from my dear Demetrios
