Crying in the wilderness.

The innocent, the innocent,
But is there such a thing?
Peoples vote for tyrants,
The peoples reap their sin.

The pictures of the media
Focus on a point of view.
The Zionists have their agendas,
Hamas have them too.

But when the scales fall from both their eyes,
When Scripture revisited it’s never too late,
The two states can show the world
Love is triumphant over hate.

And, yes, I have to say it, 
Christ showed how it can be done,
The principles of redemption
More powerful than the gun.

But both sides, on their way to ruin
On their Damascus road,
Like Saul, who became Paul,
Must see the light together
If peace to be installed. 

Oh dear, a barrier has fallen,
But one must look for hope,
The world will wait and see,
How do those mothers cope?

One thought on “Crying in the wilderness.

    There’s only one thing that I can say about this brilliant poem my friend:
    Amen, Amen to that…

    Your words echo the truth, very well written
    and an excellent photo

    Best wishes to you all
