Water (poem by me)

Here…
water is plentiful and cheap,
When I’m thirsty for a drink,
It flows freely into my sink,
Seems impossible to deplete!

There…
water is hard to buy and sell,
When they’re thirsty for a sip,
It’s a dangerous eight-mile trip,
Their need—a freshwater well.

We would be remiss,
to look and not to see,
this need to be a friend,
Jesus said this:
“He who drinks of me
will never thirst again.”

Beseech His Grace (poem by me)

The nations who pine after riches
are stricken with destitution;
Countries who lost their hope
have children in prostitution;
Nations with proud heritages
are taunted by afflictions;
Those who proclaim they are free
are tethered by addictions.

Who among men will plead their case?
Let those who call on God beseech His grace.
