We hear of pain and tragedies

Every single day,

And it breaks our heart to see and hear

When evil has its way.

Most of it though is self-induced

Stemming from a stony heart,

When the seed of anger encourages murder

To destroy and tear apart.

Childhood cancers and sex slaves;

The thought is too much to bear…

Particularly when our youth of today

Is neglected from love and care.

Family violence and tensions in households

Emanating from lack of respect;

Where broken lines of communication

Have caused frustrations and neglect.

False friends and acquaintances

With an opportunity to use,

And abuse the relationship for their gain

And where tensions are not diffused.

It’s really a sad state of affairs

When we really think of same,

And so tragic when lives are at risk

And are put to an open shame.

Unfortunately this brokenness

Will always be in existence;

Since greed, corruption and pride itself

Causes friction and problems intense.

However there is very good news indeed

And as we grasp same there is hope,

When Jesus Christ comes to heal our pain

To give us a future and a scope.

His kingdom was not of this earth

But He preached on eternal life;

To reconcile us back to the Father

To heal all pain and strife.

When our hope and faith is for eternity

It gives us a strength to endure;

With a love to share the good news of Christ

With correct motives that are pure.
