I wrote this poem years ago, dedicated to my younger brothers and sister, now departed.
She’s battered, bruised, and broken, crying out for happiness,
Desperate for love, wounded by the world, she shuts down.
Lord, can you rescue her? Save her from despair?
Baffled and shattered in his mind; depression shackles him,
Fearful and alone, he’s anxious for his end.
Lord, can You hear me? I’m crying out to you.
Please rescue them and renew their hope
Where can they seek you? How will they know?
When will you draw them? How far will you go?
My heart is heavy laden, I’m here on bended knees,
Crying out into the darkness Lord; please bow your ear to me.
My beloved Billy and Kathy
