Hope In God, Hope In Heaven - Poem by John Sensele

Hope in people, hope perverted
Hope in God, hope in right destination
Hope in God, hope respected
In the long run, people prone to procrastination.

Hope in bling, hope hassled
Hope in God, hope in favoured future
Hope in God, hope in prayers answered
In the long run, people prone to vulture culture.

Hope in wealth, hope in dearth
Hope in God, hope in eternity
Hope in God, hope in life beyond death
In the long run, people prone to desire destiny.

Hope in accessories, hope in dope diaries
Hope in God, hope in guaranteed growth
Hope in God, hope in dairies
In the long run, people prone to sloth.

    Making movement of life towards God is great. We hope for him and love him. A broader philosophical poem is beautifully penned.10 (Report) Reply
