The people
are aching
The banks
are breaking
The poor
are poorer
The rich
are richer
The children
don't know
The clouds
are descending
The rains
are drenching
The dreams
are holding
The tears
are pounding
The lands
are shaking
The streets
are hard
The footsteps
are shell-shocked
The voices
The people
are aching
Written by Carol Blackwell
I belong to a writer's group, and last night at our meeting Carol presented us with this poem she had written. I felt it was such a timely statement that I asked her permission to use it here. My only addition is to add: Aren't we blessed that God has chosen us for His children, to watch over and be with us in the hard times?
