Sadly Enough

The misery index,
Continues to climb...
Into unchartered waters.
With blinded bravado.
Conducted to direct,
By those revisting ancient episodes.

And sadly enough...
This movement goes endorsed to support,
What people choose...
With a doing to disbelieve,
A doing done to others...
Immune them from dire irreversible,
Done to themselves to achieve.

How far can sustained ignorance go?
To prove truth and reality is destroyed.
Only to eventually,
Have it heard to hear...
The wickedness of demons,
Clearly begging for a forgiveness.
For a hatred they caused to spread.
That effectively diminishes all humanity.

How far and to what obtainable limits,
Will people unconsciously...
Attempt to undo,
The presence of God's creation?
To have it acknowledged,
Them to be self righteous fools?

If this is not the height,
Of crazed ignorance ignited.
We should all pray,
For that day to come before too late.
That God reveals and expose to show...
What we have done is sad enough.
Leaving nothing else on Earth this sad.

Enough to have had it,
Is yet not enough.
To awaken and break away,
From such a stupidity.
Nolonger no one should regard a game!
Or believe there is a winner,
Cheered as they approach the finish line.
