PROTECTION#1
God my protector
you are the one
who nestles me
under your wings
you are the warmth
rising from the heating grate
melting my cold heart
into a heart of flesh
you are the piece of bread
on an empty stomach
recieved at the soup kitchen
nourishing my famished spirit
you are water on parched lips
flowing from the fire hydrant
cleansing my cluttered life
you are the gentle voice
a stranger who takes time
for those I find hard to love
you are also my liberator
from devouring dark depression
for I call you the dream
the promise, my dignity
equality, enlivenor, empowerer
enabler, releasor from
oppressive social structures

we are all homeless
til we find our home

in YOU
Amen
