No Elaborate Pretense - Poem by Joseph James Breunig 3rd

Please forgive the simplicity of rhyme,
for I wish to be clear and take my time.

It’s never been “pc” to be Christian in any century,
out of step with the World, in what ones does or sees.

Having ideals may make me seem pompous,
even though I have no desire to impress.

I’m attempting to follow a Heavenly Plan,
by being a godly steward and serving fellow Man.

What I write from the heart, for me is real;
although as a guy, I’m not supposed to feel.

For some, the Principles of God make no sense –
However, my Faith is… no elaborate pretense.
