Dear Little Boy

Dear little boy,

so scared and thin,

it is time to become

a man

to take the hand of the lonely

to feed the hungry

to lead the church

and cover your family

in eagle’s wings.

Welcome everyone you meet

into a safe and empowering place

where they can explore and grow.

Make bold choices

Be patient and kind.

Not Superman

but a simple man

in love with

everyone

and with God.
