Today, The Last Day - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor
I read somewhere once upon a time,
that in the last days of this world,
people will turn their face from God
and treat him as a crime.
They will succumb to Godless lusts
and diminish their spirit,
give their hopes to money, greed and power,
choosing fleeting fame, grind their souls to dust.
Following religion as if it is a fashion,
making face appearance at the church
filling up the coffers,
forgetting the Christ, his death and passion.
I read somewhere that sea shall take the shore,
everyone dip their toes in the waters of
envy, greed, sloth, wrath, gluttony, pride and lust,
look around you today, need I say more.
