Deeply Eternal

God imagining everything
. . . including mankind
Natural law set in motion
A supernatural sensation
Mountains of gold
Rivers of sunshine
In all of Earth’s garden
it is only man
who communes with angels
and is troubled by demons
The shallow mellow
The deeply fried
The prosperity blessed
The fashionably dressed
The stolen
The taken
The cast aside
The slave
the child soldier
the child bride
The broken and forsaken
The dignified
and self satisfied
upon that open highway
… a mile wide
Mountains of gold
Rivers of poison

Vapour trails along
a road most travelled
Praying to the smoke
of a crooked reflection
Beams of light
waiting to be unraveled
Where tolerance
is a dying voice
Religion that tolerates
no opposition
Opposition that tolerates
no religion
Is freedom really
a matter of choice?
What’s the reality?
Has Lady Liberty
really lost her voice
to the world Corporation
of prohibition?
Always taking
the easy option
One man’s prosperity
another man’s starvation
Fools for gold
a flood of corruption

The snares of fear
and the creeps of crime
The skin deep caught
in the sweep of time
Prophets of Economics
counting the cost
A flood of tears
for innocence lost
Union corruption
and greedy bosses
Under the drapes
of unnatural forces
The Meek
just pressed meat
between boardroom sandwiches
Spiritual malnutrition
complete with junk food dining
Fools doing
and believing
whatever they’re told
Rivers of poison flowing
from those arches of gold

Big dreams
of mass consumption
Fists of the ungrateful
relentlessly pounding
The knife and the fork
finger and thumb
with hands bleeding
Bites from the mouth
feeding a forked tongue
North and south
east and west
all opposition
is being hung
From the least
to the greatest
souls of trauma retreating
to where reality is fracturing
Opinions and divisions
ever changing
Philosophies and fashions
forever fleeting
A planet organic
wrapped up in plastic
Bigger fish to fry
in a sea of tragedy
A world of suicide
going along for the ride
Fate and fortune
. . . choosing a side
upon a drone bound for home
The Truth eternal
ever forgiving
The deceiving thief
always condemning
Where will you stand
when the ground is dissolving
and your world stops revolving?
A living word …
“The whole Earth
belongs to the Lord.”
Truth walks a fine line
over mountains of gold
and rivers of sunshine

To crawl and fall
To rise up and stand tall
What seems to be unseen
with nowhere to hide
All fear and hatred
cast aside
Faith, Hope, and Love,
… the Groom
with his Bride
And those things upon wings
of which the angels sing
For which the heavens ring
Things deeply eternal
The things that abide
Like those songs of old
by the rivers of Babylon
with visions of a Kingdom
beyond destruction
True salvation
begins within

Man’s inhumanity
towards his fellow man
was never a part
of God’s ever loving plan
To err is human
But just like Bob Dylan
keep on singing along
Even when Patti Smith
gets the words all wrong
Forgiveness divine
Moutains of gold
Rivers of sunshine

  1. Are Angels and demons placed there for our protection and test?
    We are all consumptionist with a plastic dream of the next best junk
    Using and using and filling mountains of thrown away hard worked hours
    Gods plan of our own choice to seek his face through miles and mikes of waste
    A test indeed
    A deeply Eternal race

    1. Beautifully written, Stella.
      I do believe there’ll be a seperating
      of the goats from the sheep.
      As God sees and weighs the hearts of men.
      His ways are so much higher than ours,
      so the basis of His judgements
      I can not possibly comprehend
      (except to know that God is Love).
      But we have the words,
      and actions, of Jesus
      to point us in the right direction.
      I know that I’ve been, many a time,
      protected by guardian angels,
      from the consequences of my own
      foolish actions.
      It is very clear that fallen angels
      are in the business of decieving,
      misleading, destroying, and killing.
      Jesus was tempted in the wilderness.
      And soon afterwards, God the Father
      declared that He was well pleased.
      I do believe that the whole earth belongs
      to the Lord, so to defile it the way our
      Capitalist Consumerism culture is doing
      is very wrong. Sadly, we will all have to
      deal with the consequences ☹️

      1. A sweep of our hearts with a weight and scale by device hands
        With the blood of the lamb across our chest the scale will be tipped
        “In whom I am well pleased”
        These words wet my face
        The whole Earth has been defiled
        And will be cleansed
        Aww got me all deep thinkin lol

  2. Though some may say coincidental, I know I’ve been “saved” several times in my life from very private and personal turmoil and anguish by some “guardian angel.” In fact I attribute some of that to why I’ve survived mostly happily to this day. Peace, David.

  3. This was something very different and yet perfectly related to. The choice of words and metaphors is wonderful and makes everything seem so realistic.
    I could feel my eyes moisten while reading some lines. What a masterpiece!! Kudos to you!!

    You are welcome

    Peace ✌and Love ❤
