Starry Eyed Forever (A Poem)

Is Jesus starry eyed forever

or does his shadow turn

when the one he loves deserts him

in spite of all he learns


And does he ever doubt it

when his heart says we'll be true

and bless his name forever

for all he gets us through


Without a doubt we doubt him

when he tells us all is well

though daybreak be assaulted

with hues of flaming hell


We walk away and leave him

and scream that he's to blame

when wrongfully we're treated

and can't explain the pain


But he knows just what it feels like

when hangmen come our way

he left them surely swinging

from the ropes they came to play


He's starry eyed forever

because he stands so true

to everything he teaches

what hasn't he been through
