"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.
To Rose The Tormented
To Rose, the one whom sleep eludes;
whence comes to you fears in the nights,
these specters that harass your moods
and chill your soul when out are the lights?
Is there no cure or wonder drug
that heals you like a best friend's hug?
Night after night you are beset
at bedtime by your heightened fears
