I hear your lovely scriptured words

Remnants of the sermons heard

But the lessons that they give

Are not the way you choose to live

I can see who you really are


In actions, you profess less truth

Than the teachings of my youth

The sanctity professed in light

Turns to evil in the hidden night

Fully absent of a guiding star


I cannot reconcile all you’ve said

With where your choices now have led

I am labeled the non-believer

But you are truly the deceiver

For that is what I have learned


Still your tongue so full of lies

Keep your reasons and alibis

Do now what you know is right

Or prepare for the coming fight

Your karma has been well-earned


Am I to believe you loved the man

Who for his children had a different plan

If I had the heart with which to pray

What is it your good God would say

About you, his so perfect child

    Yes, yes, yes!!!! This brings to mind a song by Metallica called “King Nothing.”

    I have found that the most hateful people are typically the ones who hide behind their Bibles. “I hate you in the name of god.” – It baffles me how they can’t seem to comprehend the irony behind spewing hate in the name of their almighty father, who supposedly represents love.

    Nice writing Brad. There are lots of messages in this piece. No one likes to feel used or feel like the person you thought you were talking to are someone completely different. Have a blessed evening. We may get snow tomorrow that sounds nice to me right now. Sending big hugs 🤗 and love Jonikins
