MAN'S EVIL & GOODNESS


Our world resembles a ruthless game
Where all are eager players.
There's smiles of joy and tears of woe
With hate, lust, love, war and prayers.

Man's evil inhumanity
Makes countless thousands mourn
A piece of earth made to live
We've earned our Father's scorn.

We're the bad boys of the planet
Who walk in shoes upright
We differ only in our posture
From beasts that feast at night.

After death our name lives on
In the records of our nation
Or in the genes of a child
A rebirth of creation.

Let us pray as he grows
He learns to be a man
Strong in mind, big in heart
With the good book in his hand.

It matters not, how long we live
But more, how well we play our part.
For the road to Heaven is always near
As long as there's goodness in our heart.

Poem of the Day

poet Sarah Flower Adams

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
