    Fallen Through the Cracks

    There he sits, forlornly staring
    On the sidewalk all alone;
    Wholly hopeless and uncaring -
    Nameless, faceless and unknown.

    No hearth nor home to call his own
    No loved ones at his side;
    His heart is empty; turned to stone
    He's lost all dignity and pride.

    What brought him to this point, I wonder
    Why has he fallen so?
    What dark force tore his life asunder
    Is there nowhere he could go?

    Did life break him; leave him scarred
    Did he try but fail to cope?
    Was survival just too hard
    What made him loose all faith and hope?

    Did he loose his job and home
    When the market crashed?
    Is this why he's forced to roam
    The streets and live off smelly trash?

    Was it drink which brought him low
    Destroyed his precious life;
    Left him without a place to go -
    Bereft of children and a wife?

    There he sits; filthy and staring
    His frame just skin and bones;
    Tattered rags are what he's wearing;
    They're everything he owns.

    So many souls fall through the cracks
    And are left behind,
    Yet they could all get back on track
    When Jesus breaks their chains which bind.

    No one is beyond redemption;
    No one's too far gone -
    God will save without exception
    All who believe in Christ, His Son.

    This is good! Such a vivid description of too many people. I used to see this so often when I lived in Toronto.
    I trust in Your word. For Your word has given me life.
    Psalm 119: 42,50

          I love this thought provoking poem and the beautiful message of hope at the end. This should inspire us all to share Gods love to those in desperate need of it.
