The Worries of Our Age

Could I order a man to die like a general?
Or is it easier to wonder why it is you cry?
The wounds of valor are not my own
Nor the pain of chains or how I might die

The somber warning is building now
What is the intent of the message?
When will it reveal itself to us all?
Will it be a barrier or a passage?

Does anyone know how it will end?
Will it last far beyond where our dreams meet?
Every generation thinks the world began with them
Will Jesus join us or will Satan keep his seat?

Faith is strangled between a bible and a gun
My God doesn’t need my protection, only my belief
The world begs for a savior who walks among us
Is he the spirit in our heart or only blood and grief?

Thank you Kulsum! I like your ability to swim with the tide knowing the ocean has its way and we have to live in spite of it all. We can try to voice our preferences but it can eat us up if we are unable to cope. Bless you too!

Hi Mark. Certainly you may address me by my first name, Kulsum. What I feel at the moment is that we should swim along the direction of the flow. Everthing world over is so volatile.I believe God is there to resolve the complications. World peace is what we should aim for. God bless you .....

Hi Kulsum (can I call you by your first name?). I've had a feeling of dread because of the political situation over here in the US. There are many unstable and angry people who somehow feel they have the sanction of change by any means necessary. People say things like, "I don't care, I'm voting for him anyway." They are locked into a feeling that cannot be reasoned with. I don't know what will happen as I'm not a prophet but I don't see anyone who aspires to be the voice of reason to preserve the point of our union.

..... beautifully expressed ..... the present situation facing the world. Yes, we do need the arrival of a savior ..... satan should be de-throned and world peace is most welcome .....
