Our Country's Soul Is Being Torn Ap

Our Country’s Soul Is Being “Torn Apart”


The very soul of America is being “torn apart.”

It’s a problem that’s striking at our very heart.


There’s a “blowing wind.”  A “time for change.”

As the country’s moral fabric is being “rearranged.”


As many question what the true meaning of life is for…

Many don’t seem to know what’s wrong or right anymore!


As so much pornography is allowed into our homes…

The moral decay is “eating” right at “the bones.”


Many have a hard time “defining what marriage is.”

So many are really “messed up” in how they live!


The news seems to be “fascinated” by man’s depravity…

Leaving a huge vacuum of a monstrous “moral cavity.”


Many who attend church want what’s

 “soothing to their ears.”

A God of holiness and righteousness

 is what they “fear!”


As we look around as to what our society is becoming…

God’s judgement is soon!  It is surely coming!


We must come back and leave all of our “false idols!”

We must come back to the God of the Bible!


Jesus must be our cord of love that forever binds!

It’s only in him can we find true love for our minds!


It’s only in Jesus that we can find a true purpose and meaning!

It’s only in him that we need to put our

 trust and start believing!


He is and always will be the right choice to be taken…

Without him, our country’s is “doomed and forsaken.”


He brings healing and righteousness

“beneath his wings…

He is what we truly need!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
