Oh sky look down on this earth of gray,
Something dreadful on the horizon looms.
There is no black and no white today,
Laws exist but justice is doomed.

Morality is labeled religion,
And must be separated from state,
Whose own religion is political correctness
And determining God's fate.

Oh heaven rain down on us,
Ae are tasting your tears.
Yes we've become that bad,
Confirming your fears,

That what has been done ,
Is being done again,
Those lessons taught,
Coming to naught.

Judges and laws make it legal,
To be rid of your innocent babes,
Under a symbol of the eagle, 
God's loving justice betrayed.

Racheal you cry the tears,
That now only heaven supplies,
Because ours have dried,
In the dust of our alibies.

Excuses and lies are linked,
As you and I know well,
The truth is all but extinct.
Truth is foreign to hell.

Oh heaven, look down on this world of gray.   
Something dreadful is watching and looms.
Is there nothing left but to watch and pray,
While Rachael wails by the dumpster tombs?

    A beautifully written, well executed work. I loved the 7th verse and beleive in the context of your writing "Truth is foreign to hell" is thought provoking. I look at the world today, a world foreign to my childhood and beliefs and wonder if truth once foreign, today may now be commonplace-for who knows what is truth upon the land where lies are the truth-now the only believable truth is whispered upon the wind and received only by those attuned to hear. You have a masterpiece my friend. Mac

    Painful situations indeed the world and for Rachael. Unfortunately too many in that situation. Times of great turmoil and confusion. It is a time to inspire toward a search to attain higher ground and, yes, the only way is to go back to the Creator, the Parent of humanity. Well written and thought provoking. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comments on my poem. Love and blessings, Caroline.
