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.
