A Mandate of Faith
Who is deserved of justice
In a nation of self-seekers
Bent upon climbing higher,
Gaining ever greater riches,
Regardless of the slaughter.
Who is deserved of mercy
When destruction of innocence
Lies bleeding on darkened streets,
Boot-marked by the foot of power,
Regardless of their woeful pleas.
Perhaps it will be these sinners,
When looking back upon their lives
See nothing but the door of death
And beg God for His forgiveness.
