Aris (a poem)

ethiopian girlWatching from her silent world,
Silent voices round her swirl,
Seconds ticking by unheard,
Needs to know the hopeful word.

Has no voice to speak her heart,
Needs someone to take her part,
Give a voice to silent pleas,
Listen to her, won’t you, please.

Child precious in God’s sight,
May your shadows turn to light.
God above will take your hand,
Lead you to the promised land.

Deafened ears will hear his voice,
Muted voices then rejoice.
Be the mouth she needs below,
God’s unfailing love to show.
