Poetry Pleases: A Psalm For People

Joyce Worsfold’s poem brings the reassuring message that prayers open doors.

No-one unloved or beyond his care
All the people shall bless the Lord
Huddled in blankets and darkened doorways
Pounding pavements without a purpose
He is shouting out their names
He sees inside not their shames.
All the world will bless the |Lord.

Drug crazed youths in obsessions grip
Mind oozing away drip by drip
Drunken beings with addled brains
People rushing for planes and trains
Too busy to listen or to think
All the people will bless the Lord

A smile a word a hug will speak
Prayers will open doors
