As I Watch

My son,

I gave you a perfect world
That took billions of your years to create...
And you destroy it daily.

I watch you kill your brothers
I watch you kill the innocent in My name...
I watch you kill yourself.

I watch your heart harden
As your brothers slowly starve and perish...
While you yourself prosper.

I watch you kill your children
As you reject My most sacred gift of life...
I watch you slowly die.

I watch you defile yourself
And pervert that sacred gift of sexual union...
Between you and Eve.

I watch you reject My love
I watch you try to crucify the truth in vain...
And embrace a lie instead.

I remember the first question
That you asked thousands of years ago...
"Am I my brother's keeper?"

Can you not hear My voice?
I've spent thousands of years answering...
But you've not heard a word.

My son, I have watched you
I have watched you from the beginning...
And as I watch........I weep.

                          Your Father,

    I love the way you wrote this in a letter form from God, Timothy. God has been answering our questions, but we seem to be inattentive. Much to ponder in this poem, Timothy! Now how about coming up with a lawyer limerick for my current contest. We need a couple more entries and I know you can write great limericks! Love, Carolyn

    Timothy, it's plain to see you put time into this one. I love the cohesion, the way you organized this and the thoughts it conveys. Keep working on that inspirational poetry. I love it when I get moved to write like that too. LUv, Andrea
