Cause And Its Effects

No one observant.
With an ability to see.
That which is done purposely,
Results to effect...
A return that causes,
An action taken.
Those conscious of it,
Are seldom the ones in disbelief.

Running to prophets.
Or star watching astrologists.
For explanations,
Of future occurrences to come...
Hoping to uncover,
What next is going to be done.
Is pointless to anyone,
Incapable with a mind...
Dependent upon,
The doing of others to abuse.

'A mind to have and value its use.
Is a terrible thing to waste.'

'Only if the waste,
Becomes identified to recognize...
Its value to prioritize!'

No crystal polished balls.
Or tarot cards from which to pick.
Is going to undo,
The obviousness...
Of what people choose,
To be warned...
About the consequences.

And yet...
Excuses to make,
By those living to deny...
Even their mistakes to have made.
Accepting responsibility,
For their participation that initiates...
Conflict, division and deception,
Intended to create.
Would these days,
Be miraculous confessions.

Many will not.
Or can not accept their actions taken,
To be the cause and its effects...
That has left others,
Upset and protesting to defend...
Lies told to them to protect.
Against truth.

Since to hear it spoken,
Has been allowed...
To think of it,
As a threat to their deluded way of life.

Who on God's Earth,
Would believe such nonsense?
Quote to me from any Bible,
Where you have read that scripture!?
