Topic: Black Sheep of the Family (10/03/13)

TITLE: Blindly Bleeding

Blindly bleating ever and on
in passion in boredom in pain
loud and long
Crying needing wanting blaming
talking slander talking trash
insults, fighting
much unrest.

Wanting what the neighbors have
here the neighbors are just as bad
Where bad is good and no one cares
For each has gone
to his own way
blind confusion
leads astray

Deep inside the conscience speaks
Unsettling unnerving
what meaning this?
Weíve covered that voice
Donít want to know
Donít talk to us just let
us go

We donít want to change our ways
We defend our tune
in shades of rooftop slate
and pearly moon
Then pounce upon another
hue and drown our problems
in baby blue

An evil generation this
Yet still a God who offers bliss
Has sent His son to have Him kissed
and put up high upon a tree
to suffer deathís indecency
The One cast out
a lamb rejected

Offers Himself to any and
all in this family of black sheep
who still themselves and hear His call.
Heís the lamb of God
not of black but purest white
and blindly bleeding
He gives His life

The grim picture of society you painted in the first verses ends with a canvas of hope painted in love. I liked this piece.
