Lament for the Day

Lament for the Day

Yes, I care about trees,

disease

sharks and bees

and the unnecessary murder

of  innumerable babies-

in the womb,

or out.

*

Yes, I care about the mammas that bleed,

those crying to be freed,

and the slanderous creeds

replacing the truth

that cannot be changed.

*

Yes, I care for those strung, slain and shot

without voices

to speak,

and those who are weak,

crawling in dirt,

dying of thirst.

*

The future looks bleak

but it will get worse,

and I weep.

*

Yes, I care for those with

their nose in the air

untouched by the shame

that they wear,

and the lies they declare

unknowingly.

*

Yes, I care for the innocent lost

to unjust hands,

and schemes of man

birthed by greed,

and those who believe

they know what they need-

wagging their tongues

when they finally concede,

as all will do

in the end.

*

It is near,

and I lament for the day

all will share

in the unveiling

great-

for I am

without fear.

In His Grace

by faith

alone and stand,

fearless

in His hand.
