A Moment's Grace

Sitting alone in a nearby church,
pondering the life around me;
Wondering why we all seem lost,
in this complex society.

Surely I'm not the only one,
who questions the role of man;
Determining how to make amends,
and love each other the best we can.

Lighted candles glow on the altar,
as white roses lay at Mary's feet;
The mother of Christ whose son sacrificed,
His earthly life without defeat.

This lovely place I often visit,
where peace and calm take my hand;
Inspire visions of a world that's whole,
as we interpret God's own plan.

One moment of grace is all we need,
to give of our hearts each day;
This humble gesture can only prove,
our true mission is here to stay.
