A BETTER WAY


 

 

 

AS I WALK AMONG PEOPLE AND SIMPLY LISTEN ; TO ALL THEIR BATTLECRIES. ALL THEY ARE MISSING. EITHER RICH OR POVERTY STRICKEN, THEY REACH OUT FOR MORE. WHETHER OUT OF GREED OR DESPERATION, THEY WILL IMPLORE. LOOK INTO THE FACES OF PEOPLE WITH NO NAME. EITHER HEALTHY OR SICK, WHETHER WHOLE OR LAME. IN THIS ENORMOUS WORLD WE ALL HAVE A STORY TO TELL. WHETHEER HAPPY OR SAD, HORRIBLE OR GREAT, WE SIT AND DWELL. WE TURN AWAY FROM THE HURTING, HELPLESS, HUNGRY IN NEED. FEEDING THE MOUTHS OF OTHERS WITH SELFISHNESS AND GREED. HAVE THEHEARTS OF MANY, SIMPLY WAXED COLD? GOD SAID IT WOULD, HIS STORY FORETOLD. WE WATCH THE NEWS EVERYDAY. IT ONLY SEEMS TO WORSEN. AS A BABY TO ITS MOTHER, WE JUST KEEP ON NURSING. WE FIGHT IN WARS THAT MAKE NO MORE SENSE, FOR A GOAL WE CAN’T OBTAIN; PRAYING FOR THOSE STILL ALIVE, BURYING THOSE SLAIN. MANY ARE REACHING OUT. SOMETHING TO BELIEVE IN; MISSING IT BY A MILE. DRUGS AND ALCOHOL SEEM TO EASE THEIR BURDENS FOR AWHILE. VIOLENCE AND HATE SPREAD ITS DISEASE UPON OUR STREET; ITS CONTAGIOUS INFECTION ATTACKING THE MEEK. PORNOGRAPHY IS WATCHED AS A CARTOON ON T.V. CORRUPTING THE MINDS OF OUR CHILDREN WITH IMMORALITY. WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR? ARE THEY FINDING IT OR NOT? ARE THEY REALLY HAPPIER, OR JUST LEFT EMPTY AND DRIED ROT? LIFE IS FULL OF CHOICES. WE MAKE THEM EVERYDAY. THOSE WHO HAVE NO HOPE, THERE IS A BETTER WAY. REACH OUT YOUR HAND TO JESUS CHRIST. OPEN UP YOUR HEART. REPENT OF ALL YOUR SINS. NOW IS THE TIME TO START. WE HAVE TO WALK IN THIS WORLD, WE DON’T HAVE TO BECOME WORLDLY. WE WALK BY FAITH, NOT BY SIGHT. SALVATIONS OURS ASSURADLY. ALL THE THINGS THAT MAKE SENSE TO OTHERS, MAKE EVEN LESS SENSE TO US. AS THEY HAVE HOPE IN WORLDLY THINGS, IN GOD WE PLACE OUR TRUST. IF WE’RE MOCKED BY OTHERS; OUR BELIEF SEEMS UBSURD.. WE WILL PRAY EVEN HARDER, ALWAYS LIVING BY HIS WORD. AS WE CLOSE OUR EYES AT NIGHT, LYING DOWN TO SLEEP. IN OUR HEARTS AND MINDS, WE HAVE TOTAL PEACE. THOUGH THIS WORLD SADDENS US BY WHAT WE SEE AND HEAR, WE KNOW A “PAY DAY” IS COMING. WE KNOW ITS DRAWING NEAR. AS WE ALL LIVE TOGETHER IN OUR HAPPY OR TROUBLED LIVES; WE KEEP MOVING FORWARD, KEEPING SIGHT OF THE PRIZE. WHAT YOU CHOOSE IN LIFE, IS IT WHAT YOU CAN AFFORD? AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE, WE WILL SERVE THE LORD!!

  1. Such a great poem. I can imagine it being read out loud, at an open mic night. Those circles of poets — there’s a word, I can’t recall — but it’s a gathering of people with short stories or poems like these, getting the chance to express their words. I bet yours would do very well in a setting like that.

    1. thank you hun. Yes i know what you’re talking about.. don’t recall the name of it either . lol.. but thank you. Have a great day. 🙂
