Poem: Find Refuge in Him
The morally deficient have no clue,
not finding God within their heart;
are they absorbed by corruption
and unwillingly from sin to depart?

Our Lord gazes down upon Mankind,
seeing the vileness of human deeds.
Do these workers of iniquity know anything
about meeting any of humanity’s needs?

So many souls are wickedly consumed,
analogous to the devouring of bread.
How unfortunate and Godless they were,
being overwhelmed by fears and dread.

Therefore, don’t repeat the mistake
of never calling upon the eternal Lord;
for His presence is among the righteous
and those remaining with Him in one accord.

Salvation is available to everyone.
Learn to draw strength from the Lord’s power,
which is forever revealed in His Holy Word.
He can also be your refuge and strong tower.

Become a permanent inhabitant of Zion,
covered under the Kingdom’s protection.
Be filled with love, joy and gladness,
as children shining… with His reflection.

Nice poem the way I looked at it humanity in this world is going down in spiral. Education expenses are heavily increase, the war in the middle east is not ending anytime soon, and the cost of living is at a all time high. Now and days it seems that people are mildly corrupted by the society that unfolds lost of hope in morality. Anyways its nice to express how you feel about society and having a strong sense of faith and belief to worked it out in the end.
