A Poem for Maria

A Poem for Maria

.A poem for Maria
_____________________________________
A child lost in a world that does not care
A world of greed, hate, and deceit wrap up in phony Christianity
She is one but there are others
Both to these shores in hopes of life-saving measures
The medical establishment brought her here, legally when we had a government that care
She has a rare disease; we a new treatment
A test patient she would become
Her cost is paid for no federal funds were used
We have to learn a lot, giving new hope to those who have this problem
This young child is now a woman she still needs medical attention
She has grown and is highly educated never commit a crime
But she is Guatemalan; she is not the right kind
So she must go even though she will die
But our government could careless
To us, Guatemala is a place to rape them of their natural wealth
To Trump, it is for his base drive all people who are not white out of this place
But what of us when do we say an enough is enough
Please take a stand, a far immigration plan do we demand.
Treat people with dignity and respect
Where is our humanity where is our heart
It is not the child that is lost
It is a country who once should upon others
A country that though not perfect tries
Not now, we have lost our way
A cry in the woods, a country without a soul
We will reap what we have sowed!

I will pray for this precious woman-child that God will make a way for her to stay. I once served people in a Vietnamese refugee camp located here in the states at the end of the war, and some of the men were battle hardened soldiers and no doubt some enemy troops got in, yet those refugees have not given America a lick of trouble because when people are treated like humans they act like humans. We need not fear those who are truly suffering. They make good citizens.
