The Innocent Suffer

Born Free was a shelter for at risk children.
Christmas outreach 2001
Abuse, suffering, hunger, and pain
What’s the purpose, can there be any gain?

The innocent suffer, the innocent cry
I see their agony and I ask myself why?

A child in the street, naked and cold
No food for the belly, wounds that are old

No parents around, there’s no one to care
No home to be found, no love to share

Why does this happen, why must it go on?
Is there any reason when reason has gone?

How many victims do we meet everyday?
Do we take time for them, do we think to pray?

Or are we too busy with our own lives to see
The needy people around you and me?

I just got done reading "Kisses from Katie" and this poem echoes the things that are on my heart today...

God, use my hands and my feet and my life to ease some of the suffering in this world.

Beautiful. I have also been to a few rough places... Africa to name one. Any parent does not want to see a child in those conditions. Coming to you from the blog hop.

Visiting and following you from the Make My Morning Hop! I've been on a missions trip my self as a teenager and it had to be one of the most humbling experiences ever! As a teenage girl I wanted it all and after seeing how people live outside of the USA, it was truly eye opening and has changed my perspective ever since.
