Lost in the short term

Those who walk in falseness will disappear
by day,  Night Stalker stairs as they merely
walk away.  Life has the scales that balance
on the deepest, darkest sad rainy day.

Visions may be clouded but the final
message stays.  The weak be those who doubted
on a sunny day. The teachings;  turn the
other cheek, and then merely walk away.

Life tears the heart out, the soul will always 
stay.  Your emotions come and go, but the 
soul will show the way. Some will go through the
 motions, and be selfish in everyway.

Some never absorbed the teachings of why 
Christ rose on that Easter Day.  Let the pain 
be lost in the short term.  Know Christ will show 
 the path to the long term eternal way.
