We are living in a world that can be a really scary place. We are all creating it together, but for anything to change something has to stop.

A World Needing Grace


Our world is a fallen place,

A lost sphere,

Orbiting in space.


An incredible surface

Always in change

Harassed by mans’ rat race.


Nature, awesome to taste,

Ravaged by humans

Turning beauty to waste.


She revolves at her pace

She’s travelled millennia

And man’s focus: Now! The chase.


As the earth has no haste,

Man pillages and destroys her

Never considering: In case…


The earth, as fragile as a crystal vase,

As powerful as molten lava,

She holds man – the disgrace.


Earth, a beautiful place,

Holding man and his waste,

Increasingly needing: God’s Grace.
