Wars and Rumors




Wars and Rumors

In this tattered world

Of stress and fear

There is a beacon,

that shines ever clear

Explosions to the left,

gun fire on the right

Sounds of screams,

heard day and night

When man tries to explain,

no words will assuage

the misery felt when

we turn from God

Let all who can listen,

be quiet and hear

the words from within,

that defuse all fear

Words of promise,

spoken so long ago

that today they say,

it can't be so

Yet every promise,

always brought near

leads to a path,

that is crystal clear

Though narrow it be,

and not easy to pass

ti's worth the effort,

for what we gain at last

The storms that will come,

will not forestall

The rise of the Prince,

to the eternal King

As His reign takes hold,

and anger and wars quell

This we know for sure,

We'll meet at the well

We'll drink our fill,

Our thirst be quenched

our bodies that hurt,

will be totally spent

We are now new,

no pain no tear,

No more war,

no more fear

The despot is gone,

no more a reminder

no more to be seen,

he is gone forever

not even a dream

Our King has come

to claim what's His

We will bask in His Glory,

we will sing His song

stories will be told,

of the day awaited so long

The day He took back

what is rightfully His

The day He took delivery

for the price on a hill

He sits with us now

at a table huge

and said to all

from this time forth

Be it known,

I AM has brought

His family home,

and never again

shall they roam

Conrad Trudelle

I have been to more places than most people, I have done more things than most people, I have survived more things than most others have encountered. I have continually learned throughout this process and arrived at the conclusion that the differences we see keep us curious, and that keeps us alive. Never ever stop learning, and school and college is not the only place to learn, in fact it is limiting the amount and quality of knowledge we have. Communication is what makes this planet better, we have to learn to communicate better. Communication is not only content, but also delivery. talking to or with someone is totally different than talking at them. more…
