A Promise to God (Co-written with John Moses Freeman)

Come December 21, two thousand and twelve
On the winter solstice, mankind may burn in hell
As man's Creator, I've sent multiple warnings
Nostradamus, the Mayans, Hopi Indians
All believed there was still time to reverse this course
But My warnings have ceased, even My voice grows hoarse
     Dear Father, my sacred heart is of course willing
     Though mind be the enmity of Christ's blood spilling 
     My center most being, with Your spirit's all seeing
     The sacrifice of Your son saves souls of all beings
     Father, though slay my flesh, Thou hast immortal stash
     For Thou has the Adamantine, the adamant cash
This is not the response I expected from you
My warnings so long unheeded have made me blue
You are my children and I vow to save your souls
But to save your flesh, you will have to meet these goals
Let the evil wars end, allow nature to thrive
Cast aside all notions of greed to stay alive
     I shall heed with God speed to sow the righteous seed
     My love will manifest, for 'tis my soul's main heed
     I shall present my flesh body as this soul's alarm
     I shall not conform, from this world I shall transform
     Holy acceptably my receptacle sin free
     By my renewed mind transformed by Christ's mind shall be
I will spare your flesh if your words prove to be true
In turn, dire prophesies I promise to undo
Encouraged am I to hear you express remorse
It was never My wish to take action so coarse
To save body and soul, I sacrificed my Son
It has been My wish that all men will live as one

     Forgive Father, so shall I speak just this once more
      As Thou has given thus this world for to explore
     ‘Twas a parasite seed from derivative mind's greed
     Brought forth by chance, a wild branch, doeth Thou not concede
     Purgeth my wild branch of chance, ‘tis your right to do
     That I might pursue Your true vine, my love be true

Lovely write with John. Scary thought if the world will end so soon - a man was shouting about that in the city centre on Saturday afternoon. As my mum told him as we passed, 'It will definitely end for some on that day.'

This doesnt compute, you are eclectic, open-minded, clear in sight and perception. But still glorify Jesus? Are you writing for your audience, or do you really only see Jesus as divine?

There is a book about the 2012 warnings and they say that the mayans and most other older cultures were on a 26,000 year calender ... I know that one train of thought is that its not meant to mean the end of the world but a beginning enlightenment and a change in the way we think.... anyway I hope you enjoyed my little story and that was prompted by your wonderful poem lol sorry to ramble ... thanks again for sharing kind regards love Jayne

This is a great collaboration. It was so expressive and poetic and filled with passion. It was "riddled" with truth and that makes it really awesome! Congratulations on this!

Carolyn and Moses, I must say that this poem was very enjoyable to read. I think I liked it best because your writing styles contrasted enough to sound as though we were reading or listening in on a conversation between Heavenly Father and a mortal man striving to be obedient and loving. It was great. It captures the purpose of our lives... to become more perfect and to show forth love as we try our best to please God. Thankfully, He is a good, loving and forgiving God. Lovingly, Dane

Great collaboration from two masters. I can tell which is which also, you're on the left Moses on the right (he loves phrases like derivative mind's greed) also if I have this right you're playing God and he's responding to you. Very well written. Love -Yoni

Intriging poem and an excellent collaberation. I've portrayed God, Jesus and Satan in the 1st person and can't seem to get the full effect when I do it. This is very nice and believable. Appreciate the visit to "The Elders Speak". Thanks for this read... ~<><

This is another warning ,very serious and thought provoking,excellent Carolyn.Many of the Biblical references in this poetry take us back home. Beautifully presented,scary but comforting too knowing that God is in control.Nice combination with Mr.Freeman. Best wishes Chacko
