The Weak will Rise

The winners are the losers
If they're not on the side of right
One day they'll have to answer
When their sins are brought to light

They had their celebration
That will be their only prize
All the things they have hidden
We will come to realize

Some history may be written
But it doesn't make it true
The powerful may write it
We are controlled by the few

The losers are the winners
Revelation of God's plan
Nothing has been forgotten
Truth's not decided by man

The weak will rise like Eagles
Their tears will be wiped away
A World filled with injustice
Will be transformed in a day

    Hi Richard, I follow these sentiments exactly. The fat cats will get what Is coming, even If you told them this they wouldn't care. They are for whatbthey can have now and they don't care who they have to step on to get It. Once again I find a most Interesting piece before me. Every stanza speaks out Its truth. As always Richard, the writing Is perfect. I always enjoy your work for you make the simplistic more by your choice of wording. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always...MIKE

    You speak the truth Richard! I am somewhat reminded of The Lord of the Rings with the "rising like Eagles" part... We are living in dark times waiting for the promise of light... Great message!

    Richard, superb use of analogy/comparison to paint an excellent picture of hope for humanity. My hat's off to both your writing style and obviously, unbridled faith. Lastly, thanks for dropping in and checking out a few of my own. I'm sure to be reading more of your poetry in the future. Cheers, Terry

    Richard! I LOVE the verse you are referring to in Isaiah 40: 30 & 31:But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles. This is a fantastic write of faith and hope! Amen! Loved it!
