Trouble comes early and takes you down with no regret.
Breath in, breath out the storm still hits…
Limp, tired, fearless
Your job is useless now.
Earth, wind, and fire
Bread, blood, and wine
The cross He was upon still stands in the hearts of those that believe.
Our tears come together,
Voices lifted,
Souls protected; away from evil
You, me, them…
What will it take for us to work as one while the tears start drying out?
Or will we still be useless and alone lying on the ground?

The author's comments:
Some people say why can't we ever work as one nation under God? Why does the world have to be so difficult? So that is what made me think about writing this poem "Useless". Sometimes we might say without doing. Which in the end we are no help. We just lye on solid ground waitng for others to help, but we can't get if we continue to wait. I hope that by people reading this that we would serve as one. Strong hearts in God!

Hey little sister you've got a timely message in your poem. We're living in troubled times and the enemy will try to make us feel it's useless... to live right but that's a lie! You're right we can come together at the foot of the cross!
