WORTHY OF LIFE
enslaved to hollows
excavated by trends
how does one weed out greedy feeds
on ravenous desires sinful?
or out distance pressuring peers who do spin
one’s world towards treacherous bends
no longer thrilling but vengeful?
will I skip happily free if traveling alone
straight paths even if sunshine should ‘bling’ life new
like a convertible chromed ride?
the plight of youth sadly today
as social media friends ‘unfriend’ or sway to defame
characters in a ‘click of a mouse’
victims ‘hung’ lifeless
dangling in closets while lightening technology
divides family sanely housed,
dysfunction concealed until suicide reveals
what consciences grieving no longer can hide.
is this tragically where many stories eternally will end?
held in palms of cold powerful hands
your life to depend?
worthy of life,
not deserved ’cause of actions perfect
to be recalled
‘righteous’ and ‘unrighteous’
back to learn
what a Creator desires to teach
all righteous humans
perfection to earn
so do not spurn a book ancient
divine which leads the way to life
‘broad is the way the road to death’
but narrow and cramped
is the way
bereft meek ones
choose their life to spend
“You open your hand
and satisfy the desire
of every living thing.”
left remaining on an earth
a just King will thoroughly cleanse
of wicked humanity
toll bells to ring symbolically
‘worthy of life’
to our Grand Creator
to harmoniously sing.
