He stands in the shadows

He’s standing there in the  shadows and he is watching me and you

Waiting to see if we if we are doing as we should do.Do we even know what to do.

He is crying in the shadows hiding

He sees that we are, deaf to his tidings.

He sees brother killing brother

Lost sisters grieving for lovers

Children dying reaching out for their mothers.

Why is he watching  why does he not speak.

Is he letting them suffer, suffer in vein setting the strong to kill the weak.

He sees the huge eagle on one side He picks up the dice and hurls them, he weeps as they collide.

His children are fighting, have they ever stopped .

They’re squabbling  and and arguing about the bombs they have dropped.

They lie about who did it and who did not …………

For the innocents caught in the crossfire they care not a jot.

He’s standing there in the  shadows and he is watching me and you

Waiting to see if we if we are doing as we should, do we even know what to do.

    I like the imagery of him standing in the shadows. Light in darkness watching darkness in the light.

    Yes, baffling questions – though many of us might know what to do, even fewer venture to do – as for the vast majority >>> too caught up grappling with life

      I think I may of said this before Eric but I believe it to be so true. “It only takes a few good men to do nothing for evil to triumph ” God please help us all to be brave enough to stand up and be counted.
