A dark hand touching a light hand,
A young face looking into an old,
All people working together,
For a goal to be told.
A stranger and stranger together,
A foe and a foe are now friends,
All people helping each other,
Making beginnings meet ends.
A heart understanding another,
A soul reaching out to a soul,
All people feeding their elders,
With plate, fork, spoon and bowl.
A rich man helping a poor man,
A convict dancing with a child,
All people put aside their differences,
And share a hope that is wild.
A shout comes out from the open,
Like a footstep falling on sand,
All people together proclaim,
“Now there is peace in this land”

Please reflect on the images in this poem – “A dark hand touching a light hand”…. “A foe and a foe are now friends”….. “A convict dancing with a child,” and others.
WHEN PEOPLE BRING UP YOUR PAST, TELL THEM, “JESUS DROPPED THE CHARGES!”
