Children We Are
Poem By AHO Speaks
O' Lord we are like children waiting for a sign
Our effort in searching for you is often benign
We wait for another gift to be given to find
An answer to satisfy; our disbelieving mind.
2,000 years since He left us the message of love
Are we waiting to receive yet another gift from above?
He did not establish much of what we know today
For he left his love and to many he showed the way.
We have twisted and distorted what he thought was right
Do not judge us for the times we have lost sight
We need the light as Peter and Paul saw in you
Give us the vision our lives we should renew.
To treat us as children for that is how we act
Another gift of the peaceful dove and that is a fact
If we don't respond to what is out of love
You may have to send them another dove.
The dove of love yet stern as can be
For it is your love we must be made to see
We say we are not children yet children we are
For we wait for another christmas; to come from afar.
We have what we need to do that which pleases you
Hold back the stern dove; until we express the view.
