the games that people play in this life

Causing ill, causing strife,

Voices raised in contempt

When silence would be better, deeper thought wisely sent

I reach out to you, faceless, nameless

Here in unreality shocking and shameless

I reach out to you with hope in my heart

To encourage better words than I could ever impart

I reach out to you with prayers and high hopes

To help and to heal if life has you beaten against the ropes

The sun will come up and a new day with dawn

Let me hold you, watch over, chase the sadness away, make you no longer  forlorn
