Suicide ends the torment of a child
bullying can affect him no more
An important text kills four
parents mourn their tragic loss

Occupy Wall Street crowds galore
a tycoon smirks while surveying the scene
Unemployment lines clear out the door
a refrigerator box is now someone's home

A drunkard kills an innocent five year old
first-time offense a slap on the wrist and a test
A foreclosure sign pitched deep in the earth
a family of five moves out with no place to go

Abortion discussions right and left
an embryo or life haven't decided yet
Gay marriages on the rise no opinion so
be quiet and let's all be politically correct

A vampire movie a tremendous hit
a sexual book on the best seller list
Reality shows loud indecent and profane
a number one hit today thatís for sure

No compassion for our fellow man
turmoil and chaos a familiar scene
A baby is clearly on the way but no
need to get married this is 2012

On the throne in heaven high in the sky
He's watching with tears in His eyes
All this going on and more
please my dear God forgive us all...

What a lot of thought put into this! I enjoyed it and agree completely. So glad to know the Lord and His ways, even if it is sometimes difficult to keep our heads on straight in all this. Good entry.

This beautifully written poem says it all. So many current affairs, but what does God think? Great job with this.

What a tremendous, profound piece! You've covered every issue of life in this poem. So deep is human sin and lawlessness-- thus calls for compassion from the throne of the Almighty. Humanity needs the LORD who delights in forgiving. The Lord bless you.
