FIND HIM IN YOURSELF

To love your enemy as you would a friend,
Are words of Christians who in truth pretend;
Who choose to kill and hate their noble foe,
Lest they cross over to where all dead folk go.
For Christians are not Christians good and pure,
But pupils of a faith that asks for more
Than making claims of rules they fail to keep,
Then wrestle with the outcome in their sleep.
Why when they pray would God listen to their pleas,
They do not pray in praise of God’s decrees,
They pray for help when they make such mistakes,
And go their way despite the laws it breaks.
Faith is false if serving common wealth.
Believe thy God yet find him in yourself.
