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.
