Tribulation

This poem comes from Autumn Leaves:

 

Days of turbulence, tempest tossed,

Ability to think, reason, logic lost.

 

No peace, wars, unfounded fears,

Hunger abounds, homeless, flowing tears.

 

Scripture disregarded, rights ignored,

Pervasive living, greed, joy ignored.

 

Foretold from ancient past, no attention paid,

Foundations crumbling, destructive path all laid.

 

Continue onward then, soul closed to light,

Ignore the homeless, hungry masses, struggling in life’s fight.

 

Close eyes and ears in ignorance, ignore the coming shock.

Look not for the Good Shepherd, coming for His flock.

About wfosterwelborn

I was born in a small town in southern Mississippi, but I have traveled the world and completed a career in the U.S. Air Force. I am always exploring and learning new things. From the time I was a young man, I always had the desire to write. With my writing, I want the reader to know that I wish to light a candle in the darkness and hopefully enable others to enjoy life more.
