The Word - Poem by Dave Cole

'...The Word is God', says the Holy Bible.


But man is a word too.

He has roughly 6500 ways (languages) of saying it today.

Is he at odds with Lord Almighty?

Does he want to be the devil's advocate?

It seems simple to just obey and serve.

Abide by the ten commandments and pick up the cross and follow Lord Jesus Christ.

But man is manifold; his mind is hard to control.

Enough of a good thing or a bad thing is never enough for him.

Man must make matters worse (climate change, WMD, wars galore, poverty, greed, stress and misery, ...) .

So the word which was man becomes the drunk stumbling, ..., stumbling into the 'undiscovered country'.


The Word which is God will stay forever...
