And seems to have no cares,
Playing peacefully with his toys
Words that seem to stem from his heart.
Words that have no meaning,
Yet sweet they be;

Haunted by a world of
divisive 'isms' and phobia,
to find a voice, aching to live.
The gentle embrace of
a child. Sweet hope
*'isms' - things like racism, sexism, consumerism, cannibalism... the list can be extensive.

What joy to play.

Each night she cries
Tears like crystalline rain;
They pierce my heart like frozen knives,

A narcissistic, ignorant rat
He pushes kids into mud puddles
Keeping the weak ones frightened

Life surrounds us with miracles each and every day
Blinded are the people who don’t see the wonder display
A child who’s born with ten fingers and ten tiny perfect toes
A child who’s free from illness and healthy as he continually grows
A single mother struggling to ensure the ability to survive
Facing endless obstacles; her child’s health promotes her drive
A troubled lost soul in dire need, of a kind helping loving hand
His suicidal thoughts evaporate; a now vanished forever disband
An atheist whose religion is filled with hatred and disbelief
As he takes his very last breath, the Lord’s love fills his voided grief
An elderly couple who’s family is misplaced and sadly out of touch
A homeless needy puppy who’s love has given them simply so much
An abused neglected child dwelling inside a house of dead
Blessed is the hero who saves this child of dread
A once successful entrepreneur who’s lost everything he once had
Homeless in need of shelter, a “nobody” lends him a helping hand
Miracles are all around us, if we only take the time to truly see
That the next one in need of a miracle could surely be you or me

In whom I pride
Born of my flesh and blood
Taken from me on a cold night,
Time after time
Look high and low, tireless
As I sense, yet see not where you hide,
To roam the skies
And throw my shooting stars
That you can see my Light conquers
Have heard your cries
Keep your eyes on lightbeams
A force that will turn you alight
You, and you, I
Tied together as one
Melting all fears and tears; in you

A bit too hard
I cant quite reach that rail
Daddy is down at the bottom
He can catch me if I……..
“Hold tight!” calls Mum
A long way down
Ill do it properly
Daddy is getting closer now
Just a few more to go
Ill slide the rest

There is a boy.
He has lost his mother.
He doesn't know where to go now.
