She 'Is'...A Child Of God - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I stood and observed her,
Searching for disgarded soda cans.
And picking through trash,
From a downtown corner garbage bin!

And as I observed her,
People waiting at a bustop...
Would laugh and begin to mock.
And she would return to them,
A warm inviting grin.

And observing this I began to think,
How peaceful she appeared.
With hair fresh and netted to keep in place.
And a face...
Beautiful and radiantly clear.

She knew 'something' immediately I felt,
Deep within me.
This woman knew exactly who she was.
And in her eyes...
There was not a sign shown she was in denial.

This woman knew exactly what happiness was.
And from where she directly obtained it!

Helpless she appeared.
But a few that observed her,
Like I did...
What she kept inside of her endeared!

She did not have to be convinced!
She knew,
She 'is'...
A child of God!
