    Times Like These
    (we need to touch each other even more)

    These are troublesome times ...

    Pure evil has been seething in a caste iron pot for years
    the result is far beyond the nightmares of the collective and everybody's fears
    for the table has been set as the instigators and perpetrators
    face off in a battle-to-the-death with their sworn haters....
    There's crazy madness jumping off that we must scrutinize carefully...
    And all the Believers who profess Jesus need to drop to their knees, prayerfully
    People sitting in the high seats of government, have no problem dealing dirty in closed caucuses ~
    I shudder just to think what really goes on behind the doors to those offices
    Putting their stories together to feed to the media for the rank & file to swallow....
    Reassurances and promises echo in my ears, so insincere and hollow

    As I watch the misinformed masses chug-a-lug from the bitter cup
    ...(and oh how it hurts to watch "us" slurp that propaganda up):

    All I can think of is where I want to be in the grand scheme of things....

    And all these pleasant scenes we've rehearsed parade across my imaginings

    There are wars going on, and innocents being bombed, and injustices boldly raging across this land....
    Am I insensitive if I tune it all out and just enjoy the caress of your
    hand?

    Or is it that you're the only haven of peace and safety I can find
    As the stark reality of current events weigh heavily on my mind?...

    This is what I was pondering upon, just last night. Then I asked God this question...

    With all that is going on in the world, how can you have joy. His answer was very similiar to one of the verses in your poem.
    His answer??? He gets joy and comfort from the love that is expressed to Him via His children...in their true worship of Him...whether it's in the car or in church. He seeks
    those who worship Him in spirit and in truth. As time quickly comes to an end...immersed in wickedness, there are things
    that weigh heavily on God's mind. So well said by an excellent poetess...

    Or is it that you're the only haven of peace and safety I can find
    As the stark reality of current events weigh heavily on my mind?...

    IT'S EVEN SCARIER...IF YOU DON'T KNOW!

    Many people are unaware
    that the truth is we going
    back to #1 square
    While the territory war
    rages and on the front
    pages we see nothing
    of mortalities and realities
    of the "REAL WAR".
    ..."for we fight not against
    flesh and blood:Ephesians
    3:16
    On the current event tip
    read the London Daily online
    if you want the real deal or
    any foreign news agency such
    as Italy their statistics on the
    war in Afghanistan are far higher
    than ours, don't believe the hype
    that this is a "clean kill" kind of
    war...that's an oxymoron!
    Nothing clean about killing!
    The Bush family was once in bed
    with the Osama Bin Laden family,
    it was rumored and alleged that
    Osama himself was once a Cia
    operative when we were fighting
    the other dark skin folk over there.
    "Know the truth and the truth shall
    set you free..."
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!
    *sorry alyce if I got carried away!

    There will be no peace! As it is written-- This dispensation must be destroyed that the Peace, Eternal Peace of JAH may enter in.

    O CREATOR of all universes, let your kingdom come quickly! I and I can't stand this one!

    JAH Bless.

    thank you all for reading....all of you have spoken the truth, as I believe it. And y es, YeshuJah, the destruction of this dispensation that the Eternal Peace of the Almighty may enter in, is good news for all who Believe.

    Let us embrace and uplift each other as Jahovah guides us through this valley.
