Day And Night

Day and Night
by: R.A. Slater

Day and night, night and day
There is a clamor that none can hear
Save heaven's ears
The innocent that cry
As their lives are cut short
The silent children
Who never see the light of day
The forsaken ones who are thrown to the side
Living a life or torment and shame
Without ceasing their voice cries out
Without ceasing new voices are added
To the ever increasing throng
How long, O Lord?
Until enough is enough?
Which voice added will be the one,
That spurs Your hand into action?
Is it mine?
Then hear my cry
As I lift my voice
And add it to the cacophony
That reaches Your ears
Day and night, night and day

I feel so lost
As though I wander in circles
Running into invisible walls
That bar my escape from this madness
Who searches for me?
I know of One
Who hunts for me with dogged persistance
I wish He'd find me
Before this wandering
Gets the best of me
