Marigold

marigold
Each day his childish fears replay.
Abandonment, the lies they told
His tears they sadly do betray
the adversity that did unfold.

Lost on the streets, he went astray
into poverty; hope was sold.
Loneliness overwhelms his day.
A loving touch, a hand to hold.

When morning comes, there’s light, a ray!
God’s new mercies he does behold.
Though fear of break-down chips away,
his hopes to dance with Marigold.

Each day his childish fears replay.
Emotions rampant, uncontrolled.
At night he quietly kneels to pray,
trying to lose death’s stranglehold!
