IT’S NOT THE LAST DAYS OF MANKIND ON EARTH
Too, many live with a neglected spirit
Overlooking the sensitivities of the soul.
We need additional love and compassion
If man’s glory on earth is our goal.
Bombs set off in marketplaces and streets
Teachers and students shot in school.
Infants snatched when parents turn their backs
And the elderly mugged by the heartless and cruel.
Old forests stripped for commercial ventures
Woodlands laid bare by the poor seeking fuel.
Groundwater polluted and unfit to drink
With industrial waste in the fisherman’s pool.
Corporate greed causing layoffs and business collapse.
Dirty foul air choked with pollution.
800,000,000 who go to bed hungry
With war and terrorism the solution.
Distressed by events or by personal loss
Many question why God does not intervene?
It’s up to us to rise above human wrongs
Overpowering the misled, cold-blooded and mean.
Its not the last days of mankind on earth
But the last days for the sadistic and unforgiving.
God’s Word promises the righteous will endure
So advance your behavior and begin living.
Momentary courage helps preserve mankind
When our angel within is allowed to rise.
Men, women, children, kings and presidents
Are blessed by deeds not falsehoods and lies.
Be it soldier, fireman, policeman or physician
All have known the rush of courage.
To many among us think just of our self
In our world full of crime and discourage.
Thank God for the extraordinary
Who arrive by birth in every race.
Committing what’s right to preserve what’s true
Despite, the agents of hate and disgrace.
Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt and Kennedy,
Truman, Bill Clinton and George Bush too.
Had their moments of momentary courage
And the rest is up to me and you.
