    In my exploration of joy and pain
    I find it sometimes necessary to look around me
    And as I thank the Lord that my soul can still be found
    I see immeasurable pain
    On the tear stained faces of my sisters and brothers
    As they stumble through the purple haze of life, the only way they know how
    It is not fair that those with funds when life becomes to much
    Fly away to another place and forget their worries and cares for a while
    Or that they can check themselves in to a country club for repairs
    But when the street is your only guaranteed place to lay your head
    Where do you go when you wish you were dead
    As I consider I am but one paycheck away
    I turn my head when I see them approach asking for “ohms for the poor”
    I turn away In fear that I may see my reflection in their faces
    See my very self in their places
    I asked the Lord
    When will you come and relieve
    Their pain and take your children out of this game
    When dear Lord will you end this nightmare that so many of your children endure every day
    What dear Lord are you waiting for
    When dear Lord when will you come
    When will you end the pain

    And then he said to me plain as day
    There is just one left that I am waiting for
    One lost sheep
    The winds are set the time is at hand
    But there is still one lost man That I am waiting for
    I hold out my hand but he does not come to me
    Just one left and then
    I will set my people free
    Just one left
    I cannot wait Eternally
    But there is just one left
    Is the Lord waiting
    Just for
    Me
    ?
    can I be the cause of all this prolonged tragedy
    Is the Lord
    Waiting just for
    Me
    ?

    when we consider how important each and every one of us is to the creator we have to wonder if we are slowing down his eternal plan by not taking his hand and walking with him hand in hand as he wishes to lead us to the promised land.
    Thank you for your prayers I need em
