Sands of Time

Sands of Time
A. W. Nutter

Viewing the world through opaque glass
Sands of time getting low in the hourglass
Friendships and treasures acquired in vain
Blinded to the truth in this worldly domain 

Spiritual essence of creation is withering
Traveling toward a preordained ending
Wolf in sheep clothing ascends into power
The souls of creation found easy to devour

The sons of Adam and daughters of Eve
Heritage forgotten to the Beast they cleave
Lightning pierces the sky, Christ is revealed
Prophesy completed, mans fate is sealed

    Another good read, a bit scary in thought, but accurate I believe. I don't believe the end is coming soon though. And life is everlasting. Ellen

    A very powerful message you have here, Anthony. Mankind is unmindful that for every steps he/she stumbled is a walk with God with disgrace to a wrong path that only us could change. Nice sharing this and my heartfelt thanks also for taking time to read my poem - Dream of Sailing. (^_^) Noel Villarosa.

    Great write that is prophetic in nature or exemplifying prophesy from the "Bible". Keep the creative work flowing. Sara
