A thousand years    was just yesterday
in fifty   will you have learned what matters most
You appear unable to obey the simplest laws
you have been gently led by and been whispered their truths

          you were gifted with the ability to reason
          you were gifted with mercy
          you were gifted with compassion
          you were granted forgiveness of sins , errors , failings

Around you is a cosmos in a procession of infinite order
The earth is drenched in the the richest
abundance of every thing that is desirable
every rooms canvas brilliantly adorned
constructed to fill you with joy and appreciation
every excellence woven into their creations
you were designed to master life
and created to comprehend it's secrets

          But you take      and you steal
          destroy , every answer to what
          you desire is loaded with violence
          you stretch out your arms with
          intent , not to build each other
          but to insult their life
          your own brother , mother , sister , father

You have boundaries  ,  and they ARE fixed
you can defy your design but it will inflict much pain
you obey gravity to avoid it's damage but neglect virtue
         innumerable talents were showered on you

yet every clay tablet , papyrus , scroll ,
document , book , history , writing
fully demonstrates the easy road to corruption
whose maw is full and overflowing
and the weapons of warfare now
cover the very surface of what was
         a paradise
while you slice , dice , chop
your way through your family of humanity
and if that isn't enough
you shoot , bomb , burn , poison
children , mothers , family
and leave a wake of destruction
so much easier to burn that pinch
of incense to POWER
than to face keeping your integrity
to life , and not to submit
your support to the roads of death .
