JUDGEMENT DAY: A POEM


I woke up one morning to a purple mist

Beneath pearly circles of clouds

And the terrific roar of thunderclaps in the sky

Such astounding, grand beauty around me

The firmament was swarming with life ferocious

As if lashing out it’s beauty against Earth’s tedious grounds

I heard a voice, By God! I did! By God!

Like a rumble from deep within, like the swish of a thousand waves

And it struck my conscience, awoke it

As upon Sinai hill, God spoke unto Moses

He doth call upon his children once more

I stand in awe and reverence and mists turn into royal blue

Flashes of lightning humble my being

The time has come to surrender all

To thy might and unfailing love

To be beheld in all majesty and glory

As upon thy noble seat, you come to judge

All land vanishes once more into nothingness

With just the purple skies and you

Storming virile yet so marvellous and breathtaking

Strengthening spirit and soul

Jordan’s banks I see, as I close my eyes

For I can scarce do otherwise for thy righteousness is blinding bright

For the Judgement Day hast come!
