Calling Down the Wrath of God

 Most disturbing is the absence of
Acknowledgement about the sin,
As though there is no speck of dust within the eye,
No smoke that clouds the brilliant sun,
No awareness of lack of clarity.
 
If we cannot see the dark within,
We erupt as volcano must,
Spew forth heat and burn the Earth….
Self-righteousness is so very sweet
As we crusade against the outcast Other,
Punish difference we cannot accept,
Blindly rush to judgment,
Call down lightening and wrath of God.
 
“Judge not,” the Master said.
Confession and forgiveness is the key
If the goal is peace and love.
