My hope for you

Poetry speaks to our minds and hearts and is meant to communicate more than the sum of its words. It is an apt expression of our walk with the Lord. I encourage you to forward this link to those you love. I pray this poetry leads you into reflection and prayer but I also want to start a conversation. You, too, have something to share with others-not only in person, but also here. Your experience is yours to give away to build up and learn from others in the Body of Christ. Share the word that you hear, the experiences you have lived. We are all part of the New Evangelization.If you also want to contact me by email, feel free:

The Refusal

demanding policies that
require strict observance
at odds with conscience
lawless lawgivers
coerce a
sham of freedom forcing
participation in the
breaking of Truth's Realities
contrary to the principles of
this country's foundation
self-justified by
simulating compassion in
disguises masking
intolerance by
tyranny's charade
negating nature's truth by
professing human rights
founded in
creative imaginations
promoting injustice
shutting down
dissent despite
religious principles to
the contrary
no less obvious to
all observers of
reason's deliberation of
right and wrong
unjust laws
untethered from
Divine foundations
require a
personal decision
not merely the
blind obedience of
fearful subjects
laws must be just to
be obeyed
secular commandments with
fraudulent  requirements 
must be refused for
they bring death to the
heart created for life
eternity's King
temporal tyrants
whose claims of
overreach with an
immoral ruse and
echo from hell's chambers
disguised in sweet
dictations of human rights but
in reality are
liberation's dehumanization
not gonna happen here
