Face In The Sky - Poem by louis rams

They said it was seen in the early hours
After heavy rains and morning showers.
A face that appeared in the sky
Behind a colored rainbow way up high.

The face seemed to be looking down
At the destruction on the ground.
Peoples homes torn and shattered
And the cries of help was all that mattered.

People asking ' why is this happening dear lord'
What have we done that 'thou has forsaken us'

Then a voice was heard from up above
' it will not be like NOAH'S ARK
If you change the paths on which you've embarked'

I am putting your future in your hands
What's not to understand.
You think only of the material things that you can hold
Such as money, silver, and bits of gold.

You can not take this with you when it's
Your time to go
for when death comes you will never know.

If you seek me you will see
that I will change the course of history.
It will not show that the earth was
Destroyed by the human hand
Because you opened your eyes- and took a stand.

What is so difficult to accept GOD into your life
When he sent his only begotten son as the sacrifice.
He gave his life so that we could live
How much more would he have to give.
Look at all your rivers and streams
At the green grass and all the trees
At the sun, the moon above
All this was done because his love.

All the conceivable foods to eat
And it was laid at your feet.
What more does he have to do
To show -'his love for you'.

So that face that you see in the sky
Is the reflection of your face
As he passes you by.
