Who…?


*SUNDAY Morning Nugget*

A very emaciated mother gazes
at her skinny baby in her arms
till tears rolled down her own bony cheeks
AIDS victims both, they just silently await that final quiet …
A teenage girl aching
broken, crumpled, despondent
moans and moans in solitude: she had been raped …
A young man sits in the cold prison cell—
Dreams disrupted, hopes halted, prospects pendent …
Who …?

Sweethearts… lovebirds ending
up lovelorn… brokenheart’d …
Happily wed couples
just last November
and only now remember
—or maybe, feel
they were never compatible!
Unwed mothers
absentee fathers
wife-husband materials still searching …
And Someone waiting for Someday to bring the angel, somehow …
Who Will …?

Many a scarcely spotted youthful faces
looking keenly to the eastern sky every dawn
still with quests unmet!
And many a weather-beaten aged visages
looking forlornly to the western sky every dusk
still with questions unanswered!
From sunrise to sundown, all searching
From the womb to the tomb all hoping that Someday …
Who Will Bring Them …?

And from womb to tomb all hoping that Someday …

Hmm, Who Will Bring Them HOPE? The Hope
Of Glory Jesus Christ. WHO …?
And they say: Please why not YOU?
