To you without a partner feeling lost and alone To you without food, starving broke without a home All is not lost – you have a glorious life ahead Do not dwell on the past, erect a brighter future instead
To you behind bars, shackled, wrongfully accused To you torn and tattered, emotionally abused All is not lost – you have a glorious life to live You’re not forced to forget just find the strength to forgive
To you the rape victim, tortured by disease To you the oppressed unable to cater for your needs All is not lost – there’s great abundance within you No matter how hard you fall, crawl, stand up and continue
To you feeling unworthy, dirty and sheltered in shame To you feeling strain, crying, worn out in pain All is possible through persistence amid passion In addition to a good heart, self discipline, knowledge and action
Lost delights of mine, leave me not in unknown ways And all of our dandled days in my fortune’s hand Winder cold wails the wrong of death delays When cold wind blows into my desert sands She has turned within
Alone and unwanted. Unnecessary and useless. Unable to satisfy. In need of replacing. The heat of the moment. Now died down. Left unfeeling. Mind still racing. A touch once hot. The passion now gone. No longer needed. No more devoured.
