Lost on the Way
We created money to exculpate and
accommodate a reason for our diversity
and dissimilarity, to separate the happy
and the unhappy, the (so called) worthy
and the unworthy, as if we could modify
the equality of creation.
We settled borders and built different countries,
as if this world had not been given to us in full.
We allowed shelter to evil, so that good
could be fought, giving reason for a judgment
and a sentence at the end of our earthly lives.
Unfortunately, it was not without reason
that Deuteronomy 32-20 tells us of gloomy
and sad decision of the Creator:
“Then he said – I will hide my face from them,
I will see what their end will be; for they are
a perverse generation, sons in whom is no faithfulness – “
We know nor he or his prophets have yet revoked
cruel and severe such statement.
And the truth is, since then,
we go astray as lost sheep,
and cannot even find the way back.
