The Modern Trend of Things!

The modern world of children, men, women -
Enslaved by greed for wealth and luxury,
Engaged in a rat-race for authority,
Aims to subjugate neighbor and brethren!

All sense of values has been shown the door!
Missing is humaneness and compassion;
A beastly nature has become fashion;
The rich blood-suck the innocent and poor!

Man's conscience lies blunted, blindfolded;
Man's heart has turned like stone without feelings;
Man's mind is split and takes on virtual wings;
Man's body parts surreally, moulded!

The Master of the universe looks on
With awe and anger at His creation;
The freedom given has made each nation
Abominably sinful and war-torn.

The love of God has left the human heart;
The love of neighbor is a distant call;
Destructiveness has gained inroads in all;
Deception, sin and vice - a growing art!

How long can God his wrath and patience hold?
Did He give human beings long a rope?
Does mankind need the Maker's trust and hope?
Is it the end of God's patience and world?

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
