Living - Poem by AHO Speaks

If we do not share what is given to us
God will punish with a time that is devoid of trust.

If we caused a child tears by an evil act and have no sorrow
The better we had not waited until our final tomorrow.

Part of life contains that which we call our past
A segment of living often misused and seldom to last.

Is God overwhelmed by its creations?
Tempered by sadness and actions of man and nations.

We cannot take the body and turn it into bread
Nor bring back into the living, a single earthly human; we call our dead.

'This is my body which shall be given unto you'
To cleanse the soul and also renew.

'You shall not steal'
The dignity of man and human justice which should be real.

'You shall not kill'
To destroy a living human being is an act against God's eternal will.

'Commandments for all time'
Meanings and defintions do not come from just the male gender mind.
