The Wonder of it All

When I consider all life's many lies:

The famine, the hatred, the cruelty.

I only reconsider what is good

As I search the wonder in a child's eyes.


When I cry for justice, for peace and love.

The voices of many joined go unheard.

I only reconsider what is good

As I ponder the wonder up above.


When I see the violence I can't flee.

When the defenseless scream for it to end.

I only reconsider what is good

As I gaze on the wonder of a tree.


When I feel my prayers all go unheard.

No higher power surely can exist.

I only reconsider what is good

As I see all the wonder of a bird.


When hope seems gone for all humanity,

When faith becomes something I do not know.

I only reconsider what is good

As I realize the wonder of me.
