A Man

Fatherless homes, with children begging
And in need 
Consumed with to much greed
The lies and the factions of this deceitful
Death defying, acrobats and sports
Of different flavors and all kinds of forts
Cannot uphold the soul which he has given away
Into the moonlights day
He thought it was today 
But it turned into night 
Yesterday came 
As it was always the same
Death took his ears away
And played a trick on him 
But it wasn’t a trick
Turned away to fast
To make eternity last
This magician is a fool!
Using this man like he was a tool
But then again 
You have sin and then
Grace abounds
In the place of these clowns!
This isn’t a circus
If you must
Know that the things that are spoken
Cannot be broken
The words written in red teach you
How to be the man 
That can reach you
This I hope you can understand
