An Angel in Disguise


A child lost and all alone,
Kneels down to pray 'God take me Home'.
He asks for help to find his way,
But nobody gives him the time of day.

In a darkened alley, a man on the ground,
Asks 'Spare some Change'? As he gazes down,
With soiled clothes and a look of shame,
Still a child of God, He has a name.

In the silence of the night you hear her scream,
Your neighbors interrupt your dream,
But this time it would be too late,
If only you did not wait.

The same child absent from school again,
A classmate asks 'Please help my friend',
The bruises will help tell the story,
Of he who's life is all but glory.

If a day should ever come,
When God questions what you've done,
Be proud if you can truely say,
I lent a hand in every way.

For you never really truely know,
What Gods plan is when we go,
One thing we should realize,
Is that those in need may be an Angel in Disguise.
