Super Glue

“He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.” – Colossians 1:17

Super Glue

Basin full of Super Glue
The merchant sells
On the street side
Haiti brokenness brings business
Trash covered streets; all is out of order
Brokenness and fragmentation
From ocean to ocean and to Dominican border

Fix and repair daily
Shattered infrastructure, shattered lives
How much Super Glue do we need to survive?
Dust in the streets and all is dry
Concrete jungle tatters passers by
Broken, from life to life
From limb to limb, broken
Envy, covetous, need, and strife
Super Glue to put back together their life
Hold them together temporarily
Until the pain and brokenness are over
Super Glue to unify and to mend
To bring life back together again
Till oneness is won and then the end

In Him all things hold together
In Him all things will mend
Not repaired, but made new again 
Reconciliation will come
All will be restored
Behold He makes all things new
In Unity, He is our Lord
