Rebellion, independence; yet what have we gained?
Alas, six-thousand years of suffering and pain.
The abuse of free will brought the sentence of death,
yet men will still curse Him with their last dying breath.
All of the hatred, the prejudice, and the wars.
All of the sadness, the despair, the closed doors.
All of the infants who died before they could live.
All of the mothers who for them would their lives give.
Genocides, jihads, ethnic cleansings, crusades.
Mankind produces evil in aces and spades.
Still, amid all the bad there has also been good,
there have always been lovers who did what they could.
Behold! Comes a day when grey skies turn to blue,
the millennial reign of the One who is true!
The dawn of a new day where love reigns supreme.
His brief time here on earth was but a foregleam.
When that day arrives planet earth is reborn.
No more eyes filled with tears or faces forlorn.
Children so perfect that it seems like a dream.
Polluted waters replaced with clear crystal streams.
Ride atop an elephant! Touch the horns of a gnu!
Don't fear the lion, he just wants to play with you.
Grab the asp by the tail! Stroke the fur of the bear!
Run with wild horses! Rub the ears of the hare!
A question to ponder for me and for you:
Will I use my free will to support what is true?
The choice that we make will determine our fate;
Will we choose to enter through life's narrow gate?
