Uncounted

by Mark Weinrich

How many dwelled 
unnamed and unknown
when Caesar’s census
ordered his subjects home?

Where were the lepers? 
Unclean and unclaimed,
outcasts of darkness, 
forsaken in pain.

Prisoners of sickness, 
uncounted, alone,
who longed to pay taxes
and turn hearts to home.

While in a stable
in the lowliest of birth,
there graced the Savior
to give everyone worth.

Mark Weinrich lives a creative life as a writer, photographer, musician, and artist—all wrapped together in an outdoorsman. He is a retired pastor and nine-year cancer survivor.
