Wondered if He Heard
From our once little home I will come askew
And you will fade into the sunset like the phantom you never knew,
Oh the world and what it has become
Rife for the taking by the pirates and their rum,
Listen to the brainwashed as in unison they hum
Amazing in this age how people could possibly be this dumb,
Spiraling like an iridescent spirit in the air
Please Lord take me from this despair,
There was a time when I thought someone would care
But friends, family, and acquaintances just weren’t there,
I spoke to God out loud and wondered if he heard
Seems like evil was having its way in whatever way it preferred,
Forgive her if her words seem a bit slurred
Even if the lines between good and bad are blurred,
Take me down take me down this long winding road
To reflect upon how I got here in this ill-gotten abode,
Love is the golden ring for which I always strived for
Why has it left me so bruised and sore?
Power within the number known as seven
His will be done on earth as in Heaven?
Passages mysterious and vague
Not unlike this orchestrated modern day plague.
