Maroon's Song

A Poem By Sarah Liz // 8/8/2016

World, I heard the lyrics that you sing
I’ve felt the pain that false love brings
I know the dark of depths of woe
I’ve seen the scars that few will show.

World, even music breathes your lies
Says hope’s sun sets in paradise
That sin’s allure’s your only happiness
But cannot reach eternal bliss.

World, your hope is fleeting, slipping fast
Your art reflects it; but, alas,
Your billions of feet tread the broadened path
That holds destruction in its grasp.

I turn off the song, the words fade away
But your fate is in my mind to stay.
Father, if You can use a girl like me
Begin revival—Here am I—send me!

"To live is to love with the passion of a thousand stars. To love is to live despite the pain of a thousand scars. Anything in between is a passing shadow." ~Michael Joseph Murano

I meant to comment on this

I meant to comment on this ages ago...I love it. And ditto to Nerrys; that last stanza is perfection. :)

"It is the small temptations which undermine integrity unless we watch and pray and never think them too trivial to be resisted."
