In The Morning If I Arise... - Poem by Lydia J. McFarland
In the morning if I arise...
I will turn against those,
who are not wise
you will see
the wrath of God
flood the earth
with just a nod,
all he has to do
is give the command,
and you my brother
will meet your fate.
'Oh Lord save me! ' you will shout,
but it was too late,
so he kicked you out.
My dearly beloved siblings,
I've come to you with this warning:
In easier terms...
Our Father is saying:
'Shape up my children, or you shall be shipped out! '
I hope you all understand that!
Because I do, and I'm going to try my hardest,
to be righteous, by him...
So are you with me?
If not that's fine,
Because I am bold...
I am strong, and I have the will power,
to do what has to be done.
Dear brothers and sisters,
I love you through Christ,
for we are all one in him,
but the things you are doing...
disobedience, folly, fornication, lying, stealing,
perversion, drugs, violence and homosexuality;
You all know that these are not the things of God.
We are not on this earth to please ourselves,
We are here to accomplish something in life,
accept Jesus Christ as our personal savior,
repent, and do the good work of The Lord.
So that when judgment day arrives,
we shall be admitted into heaven with our Heavenly Father,
and our Brother, who died for us.
your sister in Christ
