The Brass Ring (c)
Matthew 16:26&27

Foolish man holding on tight,
your soul may be required tonight.
you're invincible in your own eyes,
but the things of God you despise.

Driven by power, ambition and greed,
you've an insatiable lust to succeed.
to grab the brass ring is your aim,
you know the ropes and play the game.

Fragile man wake up from sleep,
for the slope you're on is very steep.
the grave is not the end you see,
one day you'll face eternity.

You reject God's gift of salvation
while pursuing your own aspiration.
Christ beckons you, do not hesitate,
repent and be saved before it's too late.

In a zealous attempt to reach your goal
what will you gain if you lost your soul?
Please foolish man do not delay
or you'll answer to God on judgment day!

Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
