Shifting Sands

2014 Albert Moyer, Jr.

For the sands are shifting

In an incomprehensible way.

Our moral fabric stripped away.

People talk, walk, and wonder,

” Why are people suffering?”

They cry in agony from the pain.

Their salaries are low,

And the violence is high.

Yet they fail to look up,

And humble themselves to the most high.

For the reprobate mind,

Their eyes are blind.

For they will never see the signs.

They run crazy like ants,

From a mound that has been kicked,

Listening to false prophets,

Only to be tricked.

For their pain is real,

It cannot be denied.

Yet it could all change,

If they ask the Lord,

To be on their side.
