Pour l'amour de Dieu


Pour l'amour de Dieu
For the love of God
For a promise of an eternal afterlife bliss
What would you do?
What would you give?
Some, all, or nothing at all?
Mortal, just how far would be willing to go
To hold onto your immortal soul
Do you even care
Or do you think to push this question aside and save it for another day
What if another day never comes
What if thee who is most holy wants his answer
Here and now
No more waiting
No lame excuses accepted
Tell me
You self-centered
Selfish
Foolish mortal ones
What would you do
If the almightly came down today from the sky
To ask of you
My precious lamb child
Tell me
What would you do
Pour l'amour de Dieu
What would you do
How much, who or what would you surrender
To forever secure
The love of God

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
