Riding the Fence

Finding a happy medium
Between the "God" on Sunday you claim
And the world you worshiped today
Living  strategically in the grey
All roads lead to heaven anyway
Just don't cross that line and you'll be okay
Sin isn't sin if its downplayed


But the closer I get to the line
The more I find
My thoughts on morals being twisted and twined
what I once believed wrong is now fine 
My religion becoming a secret confined

Since tasting the lusted fruit
My only pursuit
is the forbidden food
That I was suppose to exclude
To never uproot,
yet still I argued
my soul pays for its pollute
A wedding gown soiled in soot
Falling far away from holiness
down the chimney shoot

In our culture we're submerged
Forgetting to purge
Out the sin on which we gorge
No longer finding answers needed in church
Instead "how to's" typed in Google search
Just doing what we do, satisfying hormones urge
No body part left reserved

"Oh country tis' of thee"
Living far from liberty
As far as the eye can see
From the commercialized debris
Of everything worldly
Self destructing party

Get on your knees 
Repent back to He
Who died so you can be free
Theres still time to intervene
From the unclean things
That leave you empty

But don't mind me
I express my views too openly

    If a child of God you are, fear not punishment. It is reserved for unbelievers. Chastisement and discipline you may experience, from a loving Father. I love the way you leave yourself vulnerable to attacks from those who do not recognize the ways of God...... Love Ya, Jake

    Hi Jessica,I like this poem very much. It is so confusing. What was a sin yesterday is not a sin today. It seems to keep changing. For me I say my prayers and hope for the best. I just hope that at the end we are not given another test. Take care and enjoy life.
