I look toward the wondrous night sky

I look toward the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond.
Perhaps I’m not as far away as they say
maybe there’s no “there” there, after all.
Something outside hides the way,
prevents me from hearing the call…

I look toward the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond.
Hope is a baby crying for candy
while suckling on mother’s breast –
nothing more.
Fear and love war in my soul,
there is no victor,
but the battle takes a dreadful toll..

I look toward the wondrous night sky
and imagine what lies beyond.
Like an ant in a skyscraper’s basement
my perception is dim,
nothing more than a whim.
Faces pass in the crowd,
I smile, move on.
Onward, never resting, till journey’s end;
and friendless on that last day,
I die alone…

“It is because the poor are too weak and afraid to lie and steal that Jesus called them blessed. That is why Christians despise the poor. In a capitalist democracy people are only worth what they are worth.” – Kurt Poleet, After I Died

  1. I disagree with Kurt Poleet’s statement that Christians despise the poor. There are true Christians and then there are those who call themselves Christians. A true follower of Christ does not despise the poor. I, along with many other Christians love the poor and do whatever we are able to help them.
