GAIN MORE MAKE WAR

What is it all about anyway?

What can we learn from life?

Nothing at all for the most of us.

Fun!  Make more money, strife!

.

.

Strife shows up in the wars we fight.

So many killed for – gain?

Make war!  Get!  What else?  Rule the world!

Profit and loss the name!

.

.

Love less, more war, beauty is pain,

More pain the beauty brings.

Then there is the war to end all wars!

Victory!  The heart sings!

.

.

Not to forget the profit and gain

For this no end is in sight!

Gain the world, lose your own soul.

Idea?  Might is right!

.

.

Money, “The love of…root of all evil!”

How can one fend this lust?

To gain all the wealth this world can boast

Then sigh as it burns to dust!

.

.

Fun, a dizziness, “Let it all ride.”

The Ferris wheel of life!

Headache, the heartache then following

How can one end that strife?

.

.

Except to love my Savior and Lord

More than all of these!

Exercise the prayer life much more!

Sometimes on bended knee!

.

.

But then the posture does not matter

As the posture of the heart!

A posture weeping for souls of men

Somehow a forgotten part!

.

.

Like, the “Go ye into all the world…”

Is this not why Christ died?

His purest longing for souls of men

Willing the crucified!

.

.

Willing, no, eager to suffer the pain

To assuage our sorrow our loss,

To bear our sins, torment assured!

Torment!  That horrible cross!

.

.

Suffering in Hell, could any forget?

Is it not what we deserved?

God claimed it!  He made it His own!

Eternally He conserved!

.

.

“I am crucified with Christ nevertheless I live…”

Galatians 2:20
