Rainbowheart! - Poem by Denis Martindale
I know a man called Rainbowheart,
Though young, his beard is curled,
Determinedly he's made a start,
So he can change the world!
He's not content to stay at home,
He's always on the move,
That's why there's always chance to roam
And some place to improve...
He stirs up folks to join his cause,
He shows them what's gone wrong,
He says, 'Each good prayer opens doors! '
'Together, we are strong! '
He'll sing and dance, write poems, too,
Take photos here and there,
Then, with the Internet, get through,
To others who still care...
That's why God grants him expertise
Wherever he may go,
To talk to kings and companies,
So that they're in the know...
'It's time for change! ' he tells them straight,
'It's time to make amends! '
'It's time to turn away from hate! '
'It's time to make new friends! '
And so the years roll by for him,
Like on some carousel,
For God has filled him to the brim,
The Gospel Truth to tell...
He spreads Good News both near and far,
His friends are known worldwide,
His smile's just like a twinkling star,
He's full of joy inside...
But show him troubles and he frowns,
'Dear God, help Mankind change! '
That's why all evils he'll denounce,
For such as these are strange...
He's just one man, yet not alone,
He stands for what is right,
That's why in Heaven, his name's known,
His prayers heard day and night...
Crusading is his way of life,
He dreams of what should be,
Beyond the pain, beyond the strife,
God grants eternity...
In Heaven, he will be a king
And treated with respect,
Yet there he won't change anything,
For everything's perfect!
