child_debtDo this, then, my son, and free yourself, for you have put yourself in your neighbor’s power: Go, humble yourself, and plead with your neighbor. Proverbs 6:3 CSB

Danger was not on the horizon

The haze didn’t seem so thick

Debt can’t be really that bad

Held at bay with a fragile stick


Cosign on the line, he said

It’s just a formality of sorts

Run your credit one more time

Settle it outside of the courts


Where are the dads and moms

Speaking the truth without fear

Are they too burdened themselves

Bondage accumulating for years


Where’s the sense of urgency

To flee, get out of the trap

Anyone feel the suffocation

Any hope to get out of this crap


Move, start, do something, go

Don’t remain where you’ve been

Make the call, send the letter

The time is now, not when


Humble yourself, swallow your pride

Seek to become free at last

Keep asking and then ask again

Surety, twill soon be a thing in your past


It takes faith to follow God’s ways

Our problem is not of His making

Trust that His way is just and right

Tis His road we’ll be taking
