The State of The Nation

Another years upon us
for better or for worse,
the nation mired in crisis,
command paralysis.

Duped by Satan’s allies,
who want to blot us off the earth;
more concerned with global warming
than the nukes being birthed.

Right and left continue fighting
their results about the same,
it’d be funny if not so tragic
but We to must share the blame.

We worship at the movies,
concerts and sporting events,
while everywhere churches closing,
no longer relevant.

We focus on our differences,
rather than where we’re alike;
powers more important
than doing what is right.

Cops now the bad guys,
soon just bad guys’ll have the guns,
riots in our cities,
haters all around.

We pay our fair share of taxes,
some voluntarily,
they call those taxes the lottery,
our new civic responsibility.

Political correctness the new gold standard,
by which our behaviors understood,
anger our prime emotion,
dialogue no longer good.

Children a gift from God
now limited to 1 or 2
but God calls them a blessing,
why do we settle for so few?

We’re killing little babies,
and selling body parts,
our government protects ’em,
women’s rights and such.

Families, our government’s foundation
now giant cracks in its walls;
as the family goes, so the nation
can we survive if families fall?

Is life a giant puzzle
or a maze we travel through,
a game without directions,
sports without some rules?

The time for change is now America,
the line between good and bad is blurred
but history shows when man’s in charge
hell on earth is what’s occurred.

All the other gods have fallen
their followers displaced,
the real God sent his only Son,
to die in sinner’s place.

There’s no shame in admitting
we’ve missed it, we’ve been wrong,
since all of us have fallen,
we’re saved by God’s great grace alone.

Let’s wake up America
time is running out,
each turn our eyes to Jesus,
He’ll remove our sins and doubts.

About menmourningmoments

I'm happily married, the Father of 2 sons and 2 daughters and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Death is all around us but somehow we've managed to distance ourselves from it. Men, Mourning, Moments is about how the death of my son awakened me to life & the desire to seize every moment as though it were my last. It's about making sense of life in the good times and bad and allowing GOD to carry me and teach me through the hard times in life.
