The Family Will Fight!

Family feuding over a will.
It’s enough to break anyone’s will.
Why must people fight and be so greedy?
Why can’t they love and help the needy?
Someone lived a life thinking of others,
And yet their gift causes war between sisters and brothers/
Fighting, cussing, it’s enough to make you scream,
Why do they refuse to work together as a team?
God, please, intervene and play referee.
Have everything as YOU would have it to be
Siblings and immediate relatives at war.
Don’t they know what inheritance is for?
It was the gift from the one we lost
To make our lives less of a cost.
Can’t they be thankful they were thought of
And let that generosity be enough?
Lord, I pray for our family as they converse.
Help us to think of the heart, not the purse.
