PEOPLE NEED . . .

Gone are the worthy grades in school
The family get-togethers at the pool
The drugs keep telling him he’s cool
…doesn’t realize he’s playing the fool.
She’s waiting tables and turning tricks
Mind’s cloudy…and nothing clicks
Known on the street as one cute chick
…doesn’t realize she’s getting sick.
Preaching sermons Sunday morns and night
Those Bible verses he can easily recite
A jug of booze he’s hidden out of sight
…struggling to step back into the Light.
People everywhere battling each day
Trying to get back up some way
Keeping those demons somehow at bay
Oh, Lord, bring peace into their souls today.
Lord, we all need your peace in our souls today.
