Judgement

Judgement

A Poem by Scarlet Letter
"

How I see the world right now..

"
Morals
Integrity
Honor
Chastity
These words are as worthless
As the ideals they hold

Mocked for beliefs
Tolerance is the code
Turn a blind eye
As decency
And virtues
Are trampled in the dust

Lust
Greed
Hate
Sloth
Rage

Adultering, whoring, wretched people
That's is the legacy we leave our children
Yet we wonder...
Why the pain?
World hunger?
Human trafficking?
Hatred?

The "we all want world peace"
Yet we would kill our brother
If his pedestal was higher than our own

Sodom and Gommorah
Look peaceful compared to the filthy hovel we have created for ourselves

Innocence is lost
Born with "human nature"
The seed of evil planted day one
Children murdered by
Lunatics, molesters, parents
Still born
Unborn
Abort
Murder
Death

Shame
Misery
Restlessness
Despair
That is all that is left
That is what our children inherit
The right to do whatever they want, whenever they want, without consequence

Judgement day will come
And we will be held accountable
For the actions of ourselves
As well as our children
Because they just mimic our own actions

The hearts of men are blackened
Until all that's left is a withering husk
Wanting
Searching
Needing something more

Paying to their gods
Money
Fame
Power
Trying to buy happiness
Ignorant that they are being sucked in to the black oblivion
That it was all for nothing
Wasting their days
Trying to cheat death for another day
Not realizing they are killing themselves slowly
Until hell's fire engulfs their souls
And tortures their bodies
For all eternity
