Poem Prayer 2010: Keep the Faith


Hold Out
By Nordette N. Adams

Each day slips into darkness like dwindled hope
when a child loves street life
too much.

Each night settles on the city with a mother's prayers
for wayward babes who think they know

Each prayer rises to Heaven's ear until faith
falls away like the day
as dust.

If you seek a child who's lost his way,
hold fast to hope, hold faster faith.
You must.
