Led By A Child - Poem by Gladys Darlene Browning

Watching children of all races,
Beaming smiles upon their faces.
Hearts attuned in one accord,
Loving each other, per Gods' word.

Caring not the color of skin,
Nor monsters lurking deep within.
Playing together in laughter and joy,
We adults, this peace should employ.

Not looking for faults and finding none,
Their future battles already won.
Each playing together, doing their part,
Forming a bond within their heart.

If as a child, we could become
An humble spirit, so awesome.
Lord, help us be so meek and mild,
You once said, 'We'd be led by a child'.
