POEM ON HELPING PRISONERS THROUGH SPIRITUAL GIFTS Habeeb Alli
National Community Chaplaincy Conference 2013
Community chaplains who cares? Really! Not even God who answered the sigh of retired Abraham with Ishmael Even if it was on Colored People time!
And what about the men that crave beadworks And the women who create cards without colours And the colleagues whose emails sing joy Upon the small victories because Faith is winning so what
And who really cares Not maybe political neo colonists Or social engineering pundits But for sure the children of Canada and their cyber offsprings
The sunshine traced on breathtaking walkabouts The halal cuisine served with pleasant smiles The gracious space of Acadians tucked away on the Bay of Love All is in God's hand; each speaker reminded me that someone cares
For the tears of flashbacks you are not alone For the laughter at dark secrets keep moving For the you that shared courage at buried pain For all that serve my God how much do you care!
May your travels be light Your heart, for you are the breath on the whisper of God, desire more than lobster Like Dismas, the two thieves, inspired by the Master May your sacrifice be for Him, Allah, even if anyone ain't care!
