A Rumor Climbed A Mountain

There once was a rumor that whipped its spike deep into a mountain.
It climbed one rock at a time, spread dirty water like a fountain.

On its way it left behind some remnants of its actions.
Petals torn from roses gave the rumor satisfaction.

Diligent in its quest to reach its destination,
it persevered with no respect for all of Godís creation.

As it traveled spawning sprigs hatching from its hip,
the rumor gathered many weeds that sprouted from its lips.

Big and strong it took up speed and continued on its way,
adding more destruction with what it had to say.

It crushed the good and innocent with its nasty reputation.
And most of those who heard it could fill the population.

Its fervent stride fueled its life and all that it created.
All of those who loved it claimed that they did hate it.

No one asked the mountain if the rumor had been true.
Its followers were leaches lacking better things to do.

Illogical and fatuous the people came to find,
the rumor wore its welcome out and had nowhere to climb.

Its rapid speed grew weary, and it had no place to turn.
It reached its destination, sapped of energy to burn.

Nothing left but remnants of a story that grew old,
the rumor lost its fire and all its worth in gold.

When it reached the mountain top there was no place to hide.
The truth came up behind it and knocked it on its side.






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Excellent! You captured the ugly power of the rumor. Great ending. The power of the rumor is no match for Truth.
