Excited anticipation, earnest participation

Soaring expectation, What would today bring?

Crowded joviality, good humored josteling

Friends and family settling, music starts to ring.

Hands lifted high, upturned faces to the sky

Bodies sway in rhythm, as voices in unison are raised

Gathered enmasse to receive, strength, instruction, direction

In awe of what is seen, absorbing that which is in front of us.

But what is this, empty words echoing off silent walls?

Noteworthy nothing filling the air, crushed spirits as the speaker descends his stairs.

Unfulfilled weakness all around

Silently all shuffle out and leave, why did we come, how could we believe?

Week after week we continue on, hoping beyond hope we could receive.

Searching for a cure for the emptiness inside

Looking for that someone that could be a guide

To that enrichment we all heard about, when we were children.

What's this all about?

They call it church, it's really a morgue

Kiling off bit by bit, what little life we hoard

The numbers rise, death takes it's toll.

Might as well go to the stadium, hear some rock-n-roll.

Doesn't sound like the usual you, but it sounds genuine, honest and real...like i know you to be, tomorrow's another day, Amen!

We weren't promised an easy life. we were promised that He would lift us up and carry us, or take our hand and walk with us. His promises are never broken you must believe that for it is truth and the Word is the truth. God bless you!

Amen! It's a message that is often overlooked and, therefore, people are lost because of it. You definitely hit the nail on the head with this one. It's a well written and very moving piece. Nice work!
