Repent


Repent


America, America,
Why have you forsaken me?
I am the lord thy god...
You founded your country
Worshipping my holy name.
You used my word as your schoolbooks
To teach your children.
You allowed them to pray.
Why have you forsaken me?
I am the Lord thy God...
I love you as a parent loves a child with more love than you possibly know and obviously have forgotten...
I sent my only son to die in your place and you throw that in my face.
You remove my name from every public place.
Once I was rejected and mocked and washed them from this earth, with an exception of a few.
Are you one of those few?
America, America,
Why have you forsaken me?
Your leaders are ungodly.
Your focus is you.
Money is your life.
My word is a decoration or something you dust.
The only time I hear my name is in cursings or exclamations.
Your electronic distractions
Have taken my time from you and me.
America, America,
Why have you forsaken me?

Repent and come back to me or I shall bring you down from your high places
Or do you need to see more?
How low do you want to go?
Repent or you shall see...
My beloved, come back to me...

America, America,
Why have you forsaken me?
I am the lord thy god!

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
