    I see dead people.
    pale skin and bottomless eyes
    gatekeepers of poverty
    plotting mass genocide
    and i want to ask Jesus-
    is THIS why you died??

    I see dead people.
    taught skin stressed over bone
    living in trenches
    dodging nuclear bombs
    mothers murdering babies
    lest they starve to death
    the Paradise GOD created-
    this is what we have left.

    Dead people. Everywhere.
    ebony skin and eyes
    turning pain into addictions
    ignoring indignities that arise
    praying for salvation on Sunday
    practicing damnation on Monday
    blaspheming in between-
    you will have to answer HIM one day.

    I see....
    children dying everyday
    being stolen away
    mother's tears falling
    no safe places to play
    I want to know-
    why sacrifice Your Son for us to live this way??

    A jaguar in my garage
    A mink on my back
    A tiger in my bed
    and A jackass to pay for it!!!"

    Sad images indeed, and he died for this? Makes you wonder. This was deeply written.
