Influence - Poem by AHO Speaks

Influence

Those who hold positions of influence and power
Their time to be short as in an earthly hour.

Did you dispense with fairness the gifts given to you?
Were all of God's children parts of the multitude?

Were compassion, forgiveness and sharing part of your day?
Were those whom you had no influence, treated in a caring way?

Did you build edifices with lock and key?
Was your earthly time for others, yourself and the God creator of thee?

Judgement not based solely on the condition of your spiritual soul
But more so, did you embrace each and every child to enfold.

Did you suppress, intimidate or punish every free thought
Who held the keys to your kingdom, and were they sold and bought?

Most of the early ones could not read nor write
Only to pass on to others what was preached did shed truth and light.

Would a God creator of children support corruption or sin?
Rather to cease the gift of creation before it could begin.

If I believe because of what others say and those who preach
Then I may be denied to find, and the truth, will be out of my reach.
