Have you ever wondered about this life?

A mixture of justice and injustice

A blend of happy and sad

Doesn’t it all look so bad

The rich and the poor

Darkness and light

Need I say more?

Quite a paradoxical way of existence

But who cares? Right?

That’s how the stony hearts think

The users and abusers, ah they stink

They live for their belly and fame

Their god is money, mammon is its name

Then suddenly high above the clouds

I hear a mighty roar

The Lion of the tribe of Judah

announcing His judgement

He Roars!

The earth quivers, the powers of darkness fall back

The evil doers are caught in their track

For they thought we had no Helper

He Roars!

Over the afflicted among His people

Over the injustice on this earth

He Roars!

He is close to the brokenhearted

And He saves the crushed in spirit

His roar brings justice for His own,

But judgement over the unbelievers

I hear Him loud and clear

Mighty Lion of Judah

He Roars!!!

No worries. It is a bit confusing sometimes. If you reply from the "comments" section the reply button on the hub shows on the hub. And if you reply directly on the hub itself, you usually have to refresh between each reply, for some reason, and it only shows the 'approve' button. At least, that's what I seem to have noticed lately.

Thanks again, Shannon. I'm new on this site. So having trouble replying. Sometimes I see a reply button and sometimes I don't. Are I erased my earlier reply by accident. It'll get some getting used to

I love this so much. Yes, he roars!

Very well-written. I could see parts of your poem as a worship song. Nice imagery within your words. And that lion and lamb picture you found is really calming to me.
