"Why is no one doing anything?"

Poetry Corner: Send Me
Ben White

If you read the last Poetry Corner, you may have a small inkling of what's coming. I wrote this a while ago and it is still very near and dear to my heart....Anyway here's "Send Me"


Father God, I know You're good,

but why does my heart still scream?

Why do I see pain in my sister's eyes?

Why do my brothers hide their tears?

Why are we afraid to feel pain?


Father God, I know You're good,

but why are there such atrocities in this world?

Why are children abandoned by their parents?

Why do men and women only trust themselves?

Why does no one face their pain?


Father God, I know You're good,

but why do children go without necessities?

Why do children grow into adults who can't care for their families?

Why do children get thrown onto the streets?

Why does no one face this pain?


Father God, I know You're good,

but why is no one doing anything?

Children are sold into slavery daily.

Families are destroyed by lack of food, water, care.

But no one is trying to make a change.


Father God, I know You're good,

so send me.

Send me to the fatherless, the motherless.

Send me to the sick, the hungry, the homeless.

Send me to those in need.


Father God, send me.

I will go with You by my side,

to show the world Your love, You're light.

Father God, I will go.

Prose: One Call

What if you had one call, but you could not say anything other than what you were told to say? In this short excerpt, Bethany finds herself at odds with her jailers and with the one she was told to call, the one she loves. What would you do when the conversation takes a turn off script?

With each incessant numbing ring of the phone call, I could feel the betrayal coiling around me like the phone line, squeezing me tighter.
