Earth In Upheaval

Poem By Gerry Legister

Spiritual challenge to empower hate,
Condition of earth in upheaval,
The pendulum of torment await,
A planet disappears burning in travail.

Believers fighting without might,
They turn the right gospel page,
Into righteous path for inseparable light,
And journey to where time has no age.

The reapers came from around the bend
Cold and feverish spirit on conquest,
Eyes are distracted in the familiar wind
Persuade souls to see the pilgrim’s quest.

Earth striving through the darkness,
The duller pain embraces humanity,
Forgotten in shade with tragic glances
Hope mends the bridges we form in society.

On the icy clouds where the angels went,
To moisten earth caught the air in heaven,
Peering through where sinners went,
Souls remained in a state of unforgiving

The wrath of God sends earth in upheaval
Scouring people and cities lightly departing,
With myth and prophecy binding evil,
The world loitering where a new mystery begin.

Many wait with flawed humanity,
The wrong and the right perpetuate,
Dual existence awakens the mystery,
Earth existence continues to create.

The unending perception grows,
Bringing more evil instead of goodness,
And only time and mercy knows,
How far we have gone in darkness.

Disciples of deeper realms above,
Search for gods but only one is known,
In the greater outpouring of love,
Difficult snare of finding freedom.

Still Waiting

Every sixty seconds spent waiting,
On the reality to obtain promises,
Could be a minute of inheritance gone?
Never to come back and take chances.

In Heaven With You

I’m in heaven with you,
Spirited away on a burning sphere,
Inside of me are the new
Imprints of this adventure.

Pain Shall Have No Power

The pain we hate shall have no lasting power,
And weak it will be when we shall see the sane,
Go without dominion into deaths final hour,
Sink into the ground where they will rise again.

Overcoming Obstacles

Courage sometimes is the quietest voice
That roars loudest from within,
Making faith a distinctive choice
And compelling motivation to try again.

Spring Is Here Again

Spring is here again taking a shower in the trees
Bathing the wind that brings again spring cleaning,
Wash the newly formed lawns and greener leaves,
Of April; wet days soak deeper in sprinkling spring.

My Future

I want to see the changes
that lies beyond these doors,
to the gate of future ages
and see what heaven has in store.
