War of Wars

War of Wars

 

The world’s losing its greatest war

Her most important fight

We’ve casualties from shore to shore

As darkness battles Light

 

Many are wounded countless die

There’s overall despair

But few can see the reason why

Chaos is everywhere

 

Nobody wants God anymore

The world’s full of deceit

Decency’s gone and locked the door

And love is in retreat

 

Darkness penetrates everywhere

Wickedness plagues the mind

Faith’s departed leaving despair

To lead those lost and blind

 

The world revolves with lies content

Complacence sings its song

Faithfulness is so far spent

Most don’t know right from wrong

 

Much foolishness is taught in schools

Stupidity wears a crown

The church is seen a place for fools

While wisdom spirals down

 

Nothing remains but doom and gloom

Where no one’s left to blame

Yet hell remains with ample room

For all who die in shame

 

Still fools believe there is no God

That death’s the final end

With this in mind it’s not so odd

The devil’s such a friend…….

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
