'''To have the soul of a poet is to feel with the mind and to think with the heart.'''Ngoc Minh Nguyen
"The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."—Psalm 34: 18 New International Version (NIV)
Little sparrow, what troubles thee;
is it the stigma you face?
Little sparrow, what pierces thee;
is it the shame of disgrace?
Is it the brokenness in your heart,
or the sorrows you can't outlive?
Is it the anguish that sets you apart,
or the hurt that holds you captive?
What befalls you
is neither unfelt nor unknown;
God cares and calls you
when you're cast out and all alone.
