Beware - Poem by AHO Speaks
The voice is silenced and no more is said
A moment of truth, after you are dead.
Someone in need and turned away
Not even a hint to try another day.
Someone in need and never to ask
Fear of rejection and the impossible task.
Did you leave it up to someone else to do
Why did you hesitate, when it included, y.o.u?
It doesn't make any difference if I do or don't
The same comment equal to: 'I won't'.
I was a non- participant in most things
But I wanted to share in everything.
I failed to acknowledge what was given to me
The ocean, the land and most important; the people you see.
An obligation to listen and who had the axe to grind
Who was self serving and who was not kind?
Who was the leader and who wanted to lead
Who was the peace maker and who wanted to bleed?
The one who wears the clothing of the sheep to entice
Deception and fear and to drink of fright.
Mankind's record of deception, power and war
Certainly not the image of the Prince of Peace; that I saw.
