You Just Cant! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

you cannot believe in God,
and continue to live in a way
that abuses the living,

that takes from those in need,
that turns its back on those hurting,
that uses people for profit!

that walks away from the hungry,
closes the door on the homeless,
that looks at diverse people

with prejudice...
that kills under any flag!
you just cant...

life itself is sacred!
