All the words welling up inside me--
My thoughts and feelings just bursting at the seams.
And everywhere I turn there's an opportunity
To chime in and pick teams.
My world has become so muddled and foggy,
Where goodness and honesty take a back seat
To selfishness, and self-preservation ,
To politics, and gender/race sensitivity.
What happened to the educated populace?
To where did all the morality flee?
When did we reach a point where babies are killed
Just so I can keep having sex with whomever I please?
Why would people rather kill themselves
Than to own up to who they really are?
And why must I choose a side
When both have everything all wrong?
Do what's good.
And choose what's right.
And be willing to sacrifice
And there are causes worth the fight
There are movements worth the leap
There are charities worth the green
There are people worth the love.
But don't ask me to set aside
The words that express my very soul
The thoughts that God imprinted in my mind
The truths that the Spirit, the world told.
Think about the mighty power held in a voice.
The world created by a single utterance
And my words too have a calling--
To be true and live-giving.
Forget the flattery
And double-sided tongue.
Give me honesty
Give me passion
Give me truth
And give me The One.
