(Philosophy Poem) Are Any Among Us Wise


Are Any Among Us Wise

 

God’s punishment has not yet come upon those who choose to sin

For it is wicked to practice a bitter hatred of those who are strangers

Only the wicked would refuse to feed the hungry who are at their door

Yet some choose only to ensnare the weak and those who are in need

The wicked have earned the hostility the Lord will lay upon their head

 

Just as the house of Lot, the wicked see not their self-made plight

The wicked do not understand the inner strength of a righteous man

The greedy seek not the bosom of safety for they chase others charms

Can the wise or the foolish understand the depths of the Earth or the seas

Wise man, tell us how the Lord has hung all the planets upon nothing

 

Man’s fascination with wickedness perverts the innocent ones body and mind

When we choose to live among wickedness it perverts even the heart and Soul

There’s some who have pleased God whom He has loved He has called up early

Some branches the Lord breaks off early in order to save them from the fires

Blessed are the undefiled barren for God for He will give to them many children

 

What does it profit a man to have 100 children if they grow only to bring shame

Would it not be better to be barren than to be shamed by children who live foolishly

The rich and the poor, the wise and the foolish, we will all be returned to the sand

Is not the rebuke by a wise man better than to be laughed at or even honored by a fool

The ignorant gives counsel without knowledge yet the foolish accepts their wisdom

Wisdom is like fine gold, a gift from God to be shared with those hungry to understand
