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.
