Act as if there is love

Updated on November 30, 2013

Wrestling with them folks
it makes no sense at all
tough love will harm the soul
dissapoint you
act as if there is love
we know love is never tough.

Turn the cheek
pretend there is no pain
close the eyes
perhaps it will disappear
just walk on by
judgments come.

Some claim their justified
point the finger and blame
living in only anger and rage
fault finders tear up the soul
rumormongers destroy
with their mouths.

Chatter boxes unite
gossipers create the story
its a fictional character
in their head
logical arguments
this is what they hold onto
instead of the God above.

Silence is golden
when the rich heart is
is usually already won.
Amused with playing chess
strategic in the middle
of the night.

Bring someone down
break their will
harm the human spirit
tough love turns to abuse
Iron fists unite
stand in front of a judge
stand in front of a jury
that determines
the outcome of your life.

There is no mercy
haters speak in silence
threaten the innocent
taint the heart with tough love
bending the weak hearted
to make themselves look strong.

It's a waste of time to explain
standing in front of fools
the wisdom escapes
not one wise man faces the light
persecution they celebrate
and think they've won.

It's a chess game they
play in their head
honesty is to much
truth is never enough
one day they will pay the price for what
they've done.

Hide, beat around the bush
search for someone else
to blame.
Refuse to take responsibility
for every word that is spoken
the pain and suffering
that comes about.

Ignorance really has won
lost the dignity or respect
example and action
says enough
its power
it's control
they'll never do what they should
the price tag dangles
hangs from the broken wrist
as long as they worship money
they think they've already won.

Angels all watch from above
one day everything will unravel
reveal the truth, and in that very
moment God has truly won.

      I always find something new in your poem, whenever I visit on your hubs. This poem has the potential to look more better if you can post one or two pictures after revising it. Over all, well done. Thanks for sharing it.
