A Prayer for those Who Suffer

Art by Rob Goldstein
for Ulla

A prayer for those
who suffer

alone and in need

lost on our streets

lost to themselves.

A Prayer for the stricken
and aggrieved

For the frightened
and alone

For the young in fear
of the future

For the old in dread
of the past

For all victims silenced
by shame

For the angry whose
hearts are broken

For all who suffer the
grief of sudden loss:

a prayer for you…

  1. This is absolutely beautiful, Robert. We must never forget that there are those who would give so much for only a smile, for being recognized, for being heard. That alone could change their lives!
