A Confession - Poem by AHO Speaks

We are like children suckling to this worlds breast
As tho to deny ourselves that unto God is our rest..

We establish our roots and cling to the sail of earth
As tho it was of significance and of great worth.

Children we are to believe in the dust and clay
As tho God did not breath unto each of us and say.

'Go forth and inhabit according to your will'
Rejoice and share my love so that each has its fill.

First of that which I gave and can never be spent
For it is that which brings forth never to relent..

If you deny others in whom I also lie
Your life will be but a moment as tho in a sigh.

Your purpose in life is to share the portions of me
For I exist in the totality of mankind you call 'we'.

If we continue to deny according to only self desire
As tho to receive the warmth without a fire.

God gives to each according to its will and our needs
But the harvest of life is dependent on our deeds.

Will they be of giving and thoughtful concern
Or are we still children and have much to learn?

Those who abuse the children to come to Thee
Will rue the day this life they came to be.

Forgive me if my resolve is greater than the act
Pray for me children; you are closer to God; and that is a fact.
