IíM OK--- ARE YOU OK


Itís a sad world we live in today
A world of Iím OK and youíre OK
Sometimes filled with hate and spite
Where nothing's wrong, everything's right

Greed and corruption throughout the land
Murderers set free, abortion on demand
Where our Lords name is seldom heard
And very few ministers preach Godís word

Even in Church thereís sometimes attack
Christian neighbors stabbed in the back
Rumors repeated instead of prayer
And lives are damaged beyond repair

All are guilty, old and young
Spewing venom, forgetting the tongue
Has the power of life and death
And continue attack with every breath

Standing before God on judgment day
What will our Lord and Savior say
Either, enter in faithful and true
Or depart from me, you I never knew

No ordinary man can save your soul
Only Jesus Christ can make you whole
Our Lord and Savior, has the final say
And friends Iím OK, are you OK

Proverbs Ch. 18 V8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.

Proverbs Ch.18 V21 KHV Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Well done, A great message in this poem.

Too true, I'm afraid.
A friend told me recently, that they have a prayer meeting for 'just a few' who will not repeat the prayer requests received, not gossip about the situations into which they pray.
Isn't it sad that we have come to this - where most of the church members cannot be trusted to come before God in earnest supplication and intercession?

I love poems that make me think and this did just that. I did notice one typo- Lords name should be Lord's name. Other than that minor thing I think you did a nice job.

This poem has a beat to it and is measured well. Your message is so compelling. Keep writing!
