Ashes Ashes to ashes, dust to dust… How many times have we heard this? on TV, in a play, in a movie… Have you ever read it in the bible? The very book of life! He that made all things, you, me and the trees, is the true creator. Sadly the high in chair, stare into the dark willingly. They are using You. Those in the seat of power. They speak Your precious word, to bludgeon others into their own belief. Not the truth at all, But a miss-happen, miss-shapen, explosion, of warped possibilities all gone wrong, culminating in a virus that closed down, the whole world! Now we watch as our friends pass. Now we take note, if not too late; that people are worth more than money, that hurting others is a bad thing, that killing unborn babies is a sin, and murder is murder… regardless of reason. We need to bow are heads, and know that our prayers… are desperate. This will pass, stay inside, God is real...

Important message and well written - I like especially the juxtapostion of misshapen and miss-happen. You might read my poem Back to Belfast...

Ann, thanks for being the voice for the unborn! While weeping for the dead from the death that plagues us, the Left, wants more money Now for baby killing? How very sad and pathetic. The next step is to call for the death of the elderly and the disabled. Why, not? We live in a godless world, who loves ME first....I call that a worse virus. Great poem Panagiota Romios

Hi Ann, what an excellent write from your pen. At this most frightening time, your write sings true of the situation, I love the content. It is so sad to see thye world as it is now. I pray for all in the world and I pray that this virus will not be prolonged. The end will come, it is just when and what shall be the cost. Stay safe. Have a wonderful saturday. Hugs....Mike. XX
