If There's A God In Heaven (What's He Waiting For?) - Poem by MTHOKOZISI NTOKOZO MAPHUMULO

Torn from their families
Mothers go hungry
To feed their children
But children go hungry
There's so many big men
They're out making millions
When poverty's profits
Just blame the childrenIf there's a God in heaven
What's he waiting for
If He can't hear the children
Then he must see the war
But it seems to me
That he leads his lambs
To the slaughter house
And not the promised landDying for causes
They don't understand
We've been taking their futures
Right out of their hands
They need the handouts
To hold back the tears
There's so many crying
But so few that hearIf there's a God in heaven
Well, what's he waiting forIf there's a God in heaven
What's he waiting for

    I understand that sometimes the way things are can get frustating. However, God can only help those that go to him, it's like there are so many people who really need haircuts and don't go get any. Do you then also ask if there are barbers in the world, what are they waiting for? They can only cut your hair if you go to them. We must turn to God with our problems, then He will hear us.
    But good poem, nonehteless.
