The Priest!

Looking out from his pulpit the priest tried hard

to give a sermon to a watchful congregation

taking in every word he spoke with passion

trying to guide his flock in a troubled area

where poverty and violent behaviour ruled

also hard when any help was just ridiculed!


Not an easy job for him thought of as the enemy

vandalism to was a rife problem at his church

yet he was a man of God and faith his strength

could not let them see the priest was weak

determined never to give up his personal battle

knowing in helping others people he did rattle!


Gangs found it impossible to intimidate the priest

a mission he knew only he had a chance to win

with personal knowledge of growing up in poverty

born himself into a poor hard-working family

in a place very similar to his present environment

in his soul he was here because he had been sent!


Each Sunday tried to find his way into every heart

being tough himself just could not give up

wanting to give them a real chance and some hope

which he never had when growing himself

believed in his mission his devout faith came first

prayed silently none of them would ever be cursed!


Often thought would I make a priest in holy cloth

to smite evil  with all my wroth!


No! Where mans involved is there not corruption?
