Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Thank you, Lord, for loving me Even though my brothers won't Jesus loved us equally But it seems mankind don't...

I'm ill with a disease, Lord Mankind says that I deserve The Bible says don't judge Mankind sure has his nerve!

Great Spirit, thanks for loving me! It's seems because I'm red White man says good injun's Are the red men who are dead!

Creator, thanks for loving me Though a predator I be... I am a threat to mankind's greed So they kill me for a fee!!...

Thank you, God, for loving me I am blind and I am old... I have finished up my usefulness They don't want me, so I'm told!

My Lord, thank you for loving me For my sin is that I'm poor... And if I ask for any help In my face they slam the door!...

God, thank You for loving me They say I should not live... In my life I've made mistakes But these Christians can't forgive...

When our cities can't accept us Filled with hate and cannot cope And our churches are divided Then this world has lost all hope!

But if our hearts love unconditionally And our eyes are blind to fault... Then our hate will disappear And the wars and killing halt!!...

Cities of Hope are filled with people Who are accepted and are loved By hearts filled to over-flowing With God's love from up above....
