A Silent Sin

 

Nation of shame you are to blame
for broken tablets and shattered words,
scattered to your borders and fallen deep
into salted fathoms, crusted and obscured,
nevermore to be heard.

Your young will dance the dance
round golden calves and drink shamelessly
the ignorance of your determination.
Their freedom to thrive in lies
inherited by them.
The silence of a generation~
the greater sin.

How sad the skies when God cries.
His words drowned and forgotten,
damned by His own creation,
wisdom lost by a foolish nation.

About the Poet
I am a Christan mother, grandmother, wife, aspiring poet, and owner of a bed and breakfast with my husband of 37 years. I love to create an ambience of serenity in my home. I love soft music, the sounds of the birds in my yard, the whir of the ceiling fans,... Time has passed since the first time I wrote my Poet Bio...it has been three years now....in that time my life has changed drastically. We lost our beloved youngest child, our only son, to suicide. It has been devastating...shaking my faith to its core but not destroying it. I have not been inspired to write for quite some time now. I pray that I will be able to emerge from this pain and write with a new passion about my journey. Until that time I ask for prayers and that God will continue to speak to me and give me the peace that passes all understanding.
