Repeative Words - Poem by chuck Hurley

The answer to mankind's strife given over 2,000 years ago
Humanities direction keeps changing and moving slow.
'Love your neighbor as you love yourself'
Words on a tablet, placed in a book; to lie on a shelf.

The vision of my neighbor are just those I see
And then only thos few who look just like me.
So the words were repeated as he hung on the cross
That seed of life that was victorious even in its loss.

Chuck Hurley

'Love one another as I have loved you'
Spoken for the future multitudes not just those in view.
Two simple statements that truly hold the key
A life that is reflective of the the creators desire to see.

Twice we were given the words and they lay on deaf ears
Covered by that which does not matter for over 2,000 years.
Two similar statements and interpretative pages
Only to live and practice without prophets and sages.
