Religion Introspective - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

God gave his cherished son
Lord Jesus Christ
Spirit of Sacred Spirit
Who suffered death for us
Nailed to a cross, crowned with thorns.

Saving souls of Adam's children
Questioning the existence of God
Dead brown leaves fall
From storm-blasted trees
Winter proclaims a chilling reign.

Prophet in loneliness
Banished by those he served and loved
Cries from the wilderness
Imploring scattered broken people
Wanting compassion and tolerance.

They raged against him for answers
Provoking question
Why God remains hidden
Never banishing their fear or pain
Allowing the insane to prey upon the sane.
