Not the Code

What do you want
when you tell me how to live?
All the do's and dont's
seem to matter little in the scheme of things.
You say it's a code to live by
for the sake of humanity
for the sake of continuity
for the sake of harmony
for the sake of Jesus Christ.
I wonder.
Would Jesus maim or kill the innocent?
Would Jesus kill anyone?
Is anybody still listening?
Do you care?
Jesus never said to do or do not whatever.
He simply said to follow Him.
So what do you want from me
when you tell me how to live?
For goodness sake, just believe
and it will - His will - all be better.
