Hurting People...

       Hurting People…


This one thing I am

 most certain,

Lately I’ve been really hurtin’.


I try to do right, but it

turns out “wrong

I don’t really know where I belong.


So many in church just

 pass me by.

I sometimes get an

 occasional “Hi!”


I don’t think my message is

 getting across,

I feel so confused and

completely lost.


A message of “help” is my

 desperate plea,

For someone to reach out to me.


Please remember me when

 to church you go,

May God’s love and compassion

 flow in your soul.


Spending time with hurting people

 is time well spent.

It was for you and me that

Jesus was sent!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
