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.
