A Poem by a Homeless Friend
You have heard of me speaking of “Al”, one of our homeless friends, a veteran and a fine man, one of those evicted by Marietta on the eve of the coldest night of the year. Held at gunpoint while receiving the eviction notice. Despite the donated hat, he is an army veteran and loves his country. Al turns out to be quite a poet. He wrote one for our missional team.
“A HOST OF FRIENDS”
Friends are like an undying breed of loving hearts and caring needs
Hope of giving and sharing things
that only faith in each other brings
A friend is there night and day
to help chase your doubts away
So in my heart I know God is with me till the end.
So that is why I have a Host of Friends. — Al
