Diamond's Glitter
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Diamond's Glitter

Breezes and the sun can make -

diamonds shimmer on the lake.

Jewels seen but can't be touched,

can't be clutched -

and always fake.

 

Running to and fro and hither -

never call a man a quitter -

finding glimmer on the waves,

like busy slaves -

chasing glitter.

 

With every single passing cloud -

that floats on by, that laughs out loud -

at mans feeble, vain attempt,

in full contempt -

the rich and proud.

 

The root of evil, Satan's tools,

reveals imitation jewels -

then proves beyond a shadow's doubt,

a wisdom drought -

from greedy fools.

 

So please observe creation, vast -

clouds move slowly, time moves fast.

Don't let Earth's jewels make you thirst -

put others first,

and put you last...

 

as Jesus did upon the tree,

the sacrifice, for you, for me.

Pass by the glimmers on the lake -

those diamonds, fake.

His Spirit, free.
