Before I Cross The River

Poem By Will Barber

Still there will be many...
Seeking advice!
From those who continue to lead them,
Down the path of darkness.

And stopping they will...
To be instructed to have prayer along the way.
For those heading towards the light!
Brightened by Sun rays.

On their knees they will observe them in unity,
Not carrying Bibles, singing hymns...
Or reciting scriptures as they smiled!
And expressing a happiness heard as they rejoice.

Something 'spiritual' conflicts with a releasing felt,
Dismissing the restrictions of religious 'freedoms'.
