“Hate Justified”/ Prophetic Poetry

7326378758_6998e8784a_b “HATE JUSTIFIED”

Why is your HATE justified, but not mine?

Why is your crime righteous, but not mine?

You’re not perfect and neither am I,

But He was!

So they stirred up HATE!

“They HATE me without a cause,” He still says!

Is it true?

With enough HATE I will even crucify “perfection”!

 

“I” will justify anything if “I” get what “I” WANT.

My group, your group. My tribe, your tribe. My right, your right.

First divide… Then HATE… Then chaos… 

Watch “us” burn and fall! But who’s behind it all?

Certainly not “us”!

We are the manipulated! The unthinking herd they say we are.

We prove them right!

 

HATE takes.

It does not think!

HATE takes by lies…HATE takes by force…HATE does not care.

There is no truth, logic, or reasoning…HATE takes!

It’s a fire! It’s a heat! It does not think! It does not hear!

So what chance have we? Flawed as we are!

There is none good! None but One!

And we HATED Him!

We the herd, manipulated again!

Aha! Aha! My eyes have seen it! We said we said!

Yes… so we said the day we crucified even, the Perfect One.

So what chance have “I”, in your “I”s?

 

We cannot touch “Him” now.

But we have His children, and His Words!

Aha! Aha! My eyes have seen it! We say! We say!

 But you lie…you lie.

You HATE. You HATE.

You’re the HATER, and how do you stand it?

Shed your skin again?

You’re a walking skeleton, a whited sepulcher!

 

 I have peace. Peace enough to share, if only…

I have a garden, with fruit enough to share…if only…

I am not the misled throngs,

I traded my HATE for the Song of Songs!

 

But they only love “THEIR OWN”.

Your group, my group. Your tribe, my tribe. Let us divide.

Such violence spilling over, kills its own kind!

Join us and we will HATE the others! We destroy OURSELVES together!

But in the end, the real enemy steps forth claiming all we lost.

The Garden lost again.

He smiles in delight…feeling so wise.

“How simple it was, really,” he says. “Like animals in a jungle.”

Is he from China? One can’t help but wonder. But actually, he’s from way under.

From the bowels of deep darkness below, this way of HATE he surely knows.

And the rhyme starts over…the circle spins…repeat, repeat, until the end.

And then? All the HATE will be judged by “THE ONE”.

The One who is HATED without a cause.

Yes…I am guilty of HATE speech, way back then, and so are we all!

“Crucify Him!” we said.

Can we forgive, to be forgiven?

But then, that requires “reasoning together”.

HATE is too hot for reasoning. That’s why it works!

And they know it, but do not care, and do not believe the Perfect One.

God’s Holy Word.

Lovers of darkness, more than light. Lovers of jungle, more than garden. Lovers of chaos and HATE, more than peace. Lovers of snakes, more than a bird of song.

Choose you this day, which are you? 

The Garden? Or the jungle? A gardener, or destroyer?

Gardeners bring forth life. We sing the Garden Song. 

The Song of all Songs!

Salvation If this looks like defeat to you, you will never know the Garden Song.

And you will never know why Satan has already lost.

The true Garden has been restored, never to be lost again!

Many many song birds sing in God’s Garden.

It’s a beautiful thing.

“Is this a Stupid Question?”

cart-before-the-horse This last weekend in Indianapolis, 7 people were shot, and 2 died. No police were involved in these events taking place in minority areas of our city. Our poorer areas of the city are slowly evolving into war zones and have been for some time. My question is…

How motivated are the police going to be to go into these places where they are so hated, and if they do anything wrong in these high pressure, split second, life threatening events, they will be crucified? I’m not talking about what we saw with the police in Minneapolis, but the real stuff that happens every day! Guns and violence erupting in a split second! How much would you be willing to risk your life and career under these current circumstances? The people who seem to need the police the most, (and we all need them), but are they not cutting their own lifeline? Or am I just stupid?

I still believe it is a matter of faith and heart. There is a Reverend Charles Harrison and the Ten Point Coalition working desperately to bring a peaceful spirit to these communities. There is evidence suggesting they have made a real difference in some areas, but where are all the good church people in those communities that could join that effort?

There is no light except the light of Christ. If minds and hearts are full of darkness, then so will be the neighborhood, even on a sunny day. Can law enforcement or counselors change that? Unless they have real light to offer, I think not. We need a massive heart transplant, and not the kind that any medical doctor can do. I think Reverend Dr. Charles Harrison has the right idea if it leads to truly changed hearts.

So… will we see higher and higher death rates, crime rates, criminal activity and family disputes in minority areas until our new answers have a chance to work? Will these people suffer even more? And what are those new answers? Street counselors armed with psycho babble and no police backup, in the streets stopping gun toting thugs and gangs? Have we identified the real problem, or simply “avoided” the real issue again? Is this a real answer? Do we reap what we sow?

The tragedy is, and I mean real tragedy, as in TRAGIC! 7 more people were shot over the weekend because of violence filling the streets, and no one can speak of the real reasons, unless those of their own neighborhoods do. It does no good for anyone else to say anything. Past efforts have proven that. We might as well stay silent, because unless we’re one of them, and I am not, evidently, we should not speak, because we know nothing.
