RAISING CAIN IN THE DARK

From the Garden of Eden to the sands of Iraq,
“Man” has believed he can lead the attack,
murder bad guys then slog home with pride,
as if God hated those people who died.

Jesus says, “Love one another, as I love you.”
But instead of obeying, what does man do?
Kill and maim, maim and kill, war after war!
Since Abel was slain, we haven’t come far.

Man will raise Cain to have his own way
till God’s had enough and shows up to say,
“I never knew you! Be gone from my sight!
Now, the rest, follow me. I am the Light.”
