History - Poem by AHO Speaks
For over 2,000 years or so
The old testament was written as we know
Then a Savior out of a promise he was born
For another two thousand years of ritual and form.
The first took them out of Egypt to the promised land
The second gave of its love never to demand
Christians in the land of the Jew
Finding it impossible to change the old to the new.
Peter to Rome under a language called to Latin
Paul guided the church with wine and the paten
The church thrived in nations that could not comprehend
A gift left behind that would continually provide and send.
So the old went their way and so also the new
Into a book that contains the Hebrew, Christian; and also the Jew
The bible was the book their lives to live by
A Torah concealed by a tabernacle and I have to ask why?
Ten commandments and words from sin
Simplicity in each for a new life to begin
We have wrapped our existence and future from the past
Seldom a dialogue about the present as tho it would not last.
Here in America crime, prejudice, bigotry, and etc. often spoken
As tho these are not of Godly interest but only as a token
Why are families breaking down and children left on their own?
It is true; 'what we reap, so also we harvest; what has been sown.
