Words of the master

Words of the master

A man once asked the master
Which of us has the worth?
To enter in the holy kingdom
This man was down to Earth
And liked to ask the questions
The truth he had to know
The master looked into his eyes
With a deep, and holy glow.

A Rabbi, he took note of this
He thought it would be he
For he had all the virtues
Such a holy man he be
The master looked on past this man
Till his eyes lit on a child
He called the small child unto him
And at the lad he smiled.

He took the child into his arms
And said for all to hear
Those who be like this small child
The father he holds dear
They have the worth to enter in
My father holy place
The crowd they did not understand
Confusion touched each face


These words the master spoke, were true
To find that holy place
One must re find his innocence
Re-enter each that space
That each of us were born into
Each soul must delve within
And find the joy that each did know
When their days, did first begin.

    Thank you Chuck. There is a lot of beautiful stuff in the bible, it is a pity that so many get fanatical about it, and take it all so literally. I appreciate your comments my friend....peter

    it would be nice if we could do that but i think the older we get, the farther away we get from that innocence and joy. (guess i'm just a bit of a cynic!). anyway, i enjoyed your poem very much...
