|Send me a rainbow
When my world is filled with sorrow
My kindly Father, send me a rainbow.
When darkness threatens to overpower,
when my spirit sinks lower and lower,
when my days offer nothing but a void,
when hate and injustice I cannot avoid,
when I am driven to the edge of insanity,
I have none but You to look for serenity.
Let me rise above the contradictions,
not falter in the face of constrictions.
Let me see the light of beauty, love
and hope in the colorful arc from above.
First Place honor in the contest.
