I Heard - Poem by Randy McClave
I heard that a suffering was coming
So, I decided to have dinner and coffee,
Now my belly is full and I have no fears at all
Suffering, wasn't coming for me.
I heard that a hunger was coming
So, I planted a garden and an apple tree,
Now I know that I will not ever starve
So, hunger it won’t be coming for me.
I heard that poverty was coming
But, I don't care as I have money and a golden key,
I can live happily forever all by myself
Poverty, won't be coming for me.
I heard that a war was coming
But, why should I care I am already free,
Let people fight for their own beliefs and freedom
War, it is not coming for me.
I heard that a disease and famine was coming
As people for their life they began to plea,
But, I am healthy and strong and I have all my shots
A plague, won’t be coming for me.
I heard that natural disasters were coming
But, I don't care as I am safe and I need not to flee,
In my house I will be secure and protected
Disasters, won't be coming for me.
I heard that refuges in the ocean were drowning
So, I bought me a yacht to travel upon the sea,
Now I don't have to worry about sinking and suffocation
To drown? that won’t happen to me.
I heard that Christ soon was coming
Nervously I know that into my soul he could see,
I am so afraid of his judgment and retribution
I know that Christ will be coming for me.
