Your pedestal

I am a nurse and a mother of three grown children. I have been writing poetry since I was a teenager. I love expressing myself on paper. I am a pastor's wife. We pastor a small church in Media, Pa. We are presently debating with a group of people on U-Tube who say that the world will end on May 21,…

Don't you dare present your pedestal
With lectures to the pitiful
You know that you have strayed
And ignored me for some days
You know that you're lukewarm
And more off than you're on
And the captives are not free
You're not representing me
Don't you dare pass yourself off
As Gods gift to the lost
Don't you dare
