Black Sheep

by Cheryll MayberrySmith © 2020

Nearly every family has one,
Who is different in some way.
They never seem to fit in,
Much like a castaway.
They disgrace their loved ones,
Always on the defense.
Stubborn and strong willed,
Refusing common sense.
Called the "black sheep"
Considered of little worth.
Always judged harshly
From the moment of birth.
There's forgiveness in the wind,
As it blows across the land.
Restoring the "black sheep,"
At the Shepherd's command.
If only one sheep is lost
The Shepherd will search
Until that one is found
And restored to the church.
For God's love is so great,
There lies the mystery within.
Its power can cover
A multitude of sins!
