Through God’s Eyes

Sitting in a cold dark damp dungeon
Beaten until her body is bruised and broken
Her food and drink are withheld
Abused for her faith in a unseen being.

Sitting in a warm heated guard house
Strong healthy body enveloped in warmth and comfort
His table piled high with food and drink
Enforcing the laws of the land.

Cold, sore, hungry, captive body
Warm, free, content soul.
Warm, strong, full, free body;
Cold, hungry, captive soul.

(Written for all my brothers and sisters who are imprisoned and persecuted for their faith.)
