What Message is Getting Through

There is deafening noise all around,
You cannot escape it wherever you are bound.
A violent roar angry, loud and explosive,
So loud, oh so loud, it turns into a weapon so corrosive.
Noise so big, so loud, so hot and molten,
Your message is lost to all, dispelled, no longer golden.

There is violence in the streets below.
People breaking in, as people once friends turn to foes.
Glass shatters, bricks explode, fire flames and licks,
The guilty or innocent such destruction has no pick.
Businesses, homes, people damaged or wiped away,
Taken out by waves of fury again today.

There are tidal waves of age old lies,
How many deaths will be enough to die?
Leaders so corrupted they cannot smell their stench,
Plans roll out to which they've plied their wrench.
This has nothing to do with "we the people",
Much to do with the torn down steeple.

No longer can I hear the message,
No longer can I read the passage,
No longer can I find reason for sanity,
No longer do I see any recognization of dignity.
The locusts have passed again and again,
I cannot hear through their violent, wicked din.

There is one promise to which I cling,
One taste of tomorrow despite todays sting.
Jesus came and died, He the only perfect One,
He rose from death His victory won.
He is returning, He is coming back,
In Him alone resides all the understanding we lack.

Until then though I struggle to hear your voice,
Do you think there is another sane choice?
This paints a picture of evil reigning,
Of the worst of all humanity demanding,
Their way or no way, life or death,
It seems your intent to steal away our last breath.

There is deafening racket all around,
No escape no matter where you're bound.
A violent roar, angry, loud and explosive,
So loud, oh so loud, it turns into a weapon so corrosive.
Noise so BIG, so LOUD, SO hot, SO molten,
Your message is lost to all, dispelled, no longer golden.


The Sounds are Missing

The world living sounds are changing,

In some respects they’ve gone away,

The sounds of leaves crunching

Beneath a neighbors feet.

Traffic isn’t as thunderous these days,

People pass but not as many,

Even heavy trucks have gone astray,

Their wheels and air brakes muted.

Birds are no longer tweeting,

Squirrels aren’t actively gathering nuts,

As if nature itself responds to silencing,

This world, as a whole, long changed.

Feelings of discomfort and disbelief,

Are ushered in by bare branches,

As every cell in me waits for some relief,

Sounds today? What waits tomorrow?



Cost of Free Will

The Lord God is sovereign,

All things He can control,

No boundaries to His reach,

No limit to His power.

And man’s mindset isn’t foreign.

We are His creations,

He wants us to love Him,

To offer our adoration willingly,

Because He completes us,

As individuals and as a nation.

As our spiritual Father He desires,

To give us the best,

Bread instead of stones,

Blessings instead of sorrows,

Love for us that will never expire.

For us to choose a relationship,

To come to know Him thoroughly,

To live in a spiritual intimacy,

God gives us free will and we,

Can choose Him and His fellowship.

Or in free will we can say no.

We can turn Him away,

Choose not to love Him thereby,

Choosing not to serve Him,

In a way saying, “God, let go”!

That’s why we can choose sin,

Choose war and choose hate.

Adam and Eve chose disobedience,

And now we can choose the same,

Freewill let’s good and evil in.

God is indeed sovereign,

He gifted free will to us,

And respects our decisions,

And consequences will come,

In a world God has ordained.
