A New Day

Dusty roads lead to the unknown, although someone must know to where
Remote control car engines run this country, by way of the scooter
Fresh mango and coconut smells, invade upon the cow dung air
Bare foot and callused they tread across these swarming streets

A call to prayer is heard at fifteen till six
A new sunrise paints with blues and greys
Brilliant colors of the ladies clothes ignite
Stray dogs cower in their corners awaiting the fight

And my heart could not be more full than this
For I know that today is a gift for which I live
Oh Father thank you for sending me here
Oh Father let me be your servant in India

I am yours…I am yours…I am yours
