Sacred Spaces

Amidst the sacred places I've witnessed distraught faces A virtual Kaleidoscope of races History often traces Many are hungry and cold Politicians bought and sold Achingly, our God embraces He competes to fill vacant spaces Ima try to honor his plan His kingdom is meant for man But it's turning viciously dark Lord hold my hand as I embark The daily realities can be so stark Hard to be tender and surrender While yielding a sword I might need to render Divisions grow strong amongst gender If you have a special angel, send her I'm made from the rib being tender Equality, increasingly, a mind bender Engage me in the sacred spaces Let me hear boisterous laughter Have my back in extreme cases Teach me when to sit and when to stand How to enjoy and employ loves embraces
