THE REAL VIRUS

It’s a submicroscopic agent

And living organisms infects;

Will often cause disease

Although difficult to detect.

A virus is contagious

And is filtrable indeed,

And once it enters it multiplies

Where diseases it may breed.

But there are certain viruses

That are more dangerous,

And when they’re harboured or ingested

Much damage they will cause.

The most prominent is bitterness

Where the seed of hatred lies,

As it infects the body and the soul

When forgiveness won’t reside.

This virus causes anxiety

As it puts a stress and strain,

On every aspect of the heart and soul

So no peace or joy remains.

Another virus is envy

With its cousin – covetousness,

When like a worm they eat away

So there’s no time for rest.

The viruses of lies and greed

Can destroy relationships,

When violence and manipulation

Will flow from unwholesome lips.

Viruses cause damage;

They come to kill, steal and destroy,

To penetrate and multiply

When hosts of wickedness they employ.

But there is a solution

When God will intervene,

To cleanse and heal and to restore

To make things pure and clean.

He sanitises with His touch

To wipe all sin away,

As we repent and ask for mercy

So no virus will remain.

A virus simply cannot stand

In the presence of the Lord,

And when we forgive we are forgiven

And infected are no more.
