We’re been accustomed to a train of thought

When society paints a picture,

Of how our mind should think and act

Along with a list of features.

But do we really question

The source of all information?

Do we really dig deep enough

Or rely on mere sensation?

Fake news and all propaganda

Can infiltrate our mind,

As we move along with the feeble crowd

And leave common sense behind.

We’ve been fed a smorgasbord of lies

With a feast of misinformation,

When it pertains to the glory of self

To receive credit without hesitation.

We’re fed an entree of fables

When we exalt ourselves indeed;

When our pride and ego raises its head

So more myths our soul it feeds.

The dessert always looks appealing

As it’s the sweetest of all platters,

But when deception comes to spin its web

It’s no longer a trifle matter.

Our life on earth is a grain of sand

In the scheme of eternity,

And when those eyes awake from our slumber

We can see reality.

When we put things in perspective

Appreciating good character traits,

We are merely on a pilgrim’s journey

Knowing that God we’ll face.

Only God deserves our heartfelt praise

All credit and honour too;

He’s the only one worthy to be exalted

With His tender mercies so true.

Let’s remember our simple purpose in life

To adore Him with sincere love;

To serve our neighbour and do them no harm

And keep our focus on above.
