IF YOU ALREADY KNOW – A Peace Poem

There is a great conflict of interest between a born again Christian, who is an ambassador for Christ, and the military goals of any nation.

IF YOU ALREADY KNOW

We’ve got it all backwards,

Turned the truth upside down,

What happened to Jesus,

Who is teaching us now?

*

Is this unimportant,

Not a problem if we,

Hold different opinions,

Eye to eye do not see?

*

Or is it more deadly,

Are we being deceived,

By shepherds who lead us,

On whose word we do feed?

*

The crying and dying,

Is quite hidden from view,

It’s the Lord who reveals,

With His Spirit of Truth.

*

Remember the loved ones,

And children of others,

They’re no less important,

Than our sisters, brothers.

*

We’re called by our Savior,

To bring healing love near,

In no way bereave them,

From all they hold so dear.

*

I ask you, my brethren,

Truly, this is my plea,

If you already know,

Won’t you help others see?
