""As I lay silent, burden free
I asked the world to join with me

With my tongue planted firmly in my cheek
I offered answers for the poor and meek

Beware the guilt ridden, for theirs is the earthly kingdom
where starved and thirsty creatures come to drink

from a Fountain not of their making,
but will forever be offered them just the same.

I asked my brothers to forgive a harmless illusion
instead it was me the Romans chose to shun.

I asked my brothers to know the one true Boss
instead they strung me high up on this...well you know...

Because I held such a controversial stance
My 'church' made certain nothing was left to chance

They warped my endless love and set my words on fire......""

For this next rhyme, I think I'll go with 'desire'.

Hell no I'm not Jesus, I never said I was.
I'm only pretending I know what he would say, just because

sooner or later his real message has to be heard
I'm just doing my part by spreading the word

Hopefully I got it right but probably not
I'm no visionary, I'm just tired of being a robot

I have no idea what Jesus would say...
I write bad poems since I never learned to pray

I don't know what would Jesus do...
Every time I ask him, all I hear is 'I love you'.

    You never wear a mask, Yoni. Your thoughts and emotions always have the ring of truth. Few of us are visionaries, but you are certainly no robot. And you, my dear, HAVE learned to pray. Hearing the response, "I love you" is the best answer we can receive to our prayers. Love, Carolyn

    Amen, Yoni. Thats EXACTLY all Jesus would say ... smile ... but everybody else has so twisted MY BROTHER that he is almost unrecognizable and as a Child of God, I resent that ... smile ... thanks so much for exploring my writing. So many just read the latest write (like I'm doing now ... smile) and its nice to reflect on things done some time ago. Maybe its time for Mystery IV ... LOL ... glad you are at the Soup!!

    Excellent! I think it's for the new contest, a winner in my list. I love these lines: "I don't know what would Jesus do.../Every time I ask him, all I hear is 'I love you'."...Great poem, my friend. Still having problems with abbreviations(WWJS?) Have a great day. Ruben.
