Day of Reckoning

Deception, corruption, widespread lies,
denials, greed and compromise...
pass the buck, place the blame
with no remorse and little shame!

Sweep the truth under the rug,
then walk away with a shrug!
who is accountable, who will confess,
who'll take responsibility for the mess?

To serve themselves is their goal,
lacking morals and self-control...
more convinced, and I'll admit,
I'm IN the world, but not OF it!

I'm not ashamed at all to say
it is the Lord I first obey!
At best I'll pray for their salvation
as I behold the depravation.

The hour is late, days are brief,
turn from sin and unbelief!
Repent before the day of reckoning...
come to Christ while He is beckoning!

About the Poet
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.
