ANGELGOODNESS


This is How We Throw Our Faith Away
Through the night lies a love in a warrior’s blood reluctant to fight due to the man above. In his heart he cries as his heart tares him apart. This is the strength of a man torn between what he has sworn and the love he has worn, since the day he was born. He’s afraid to stand; yet the power is in his hand, but he won’t let go of the land. He is a little boy hiding behind a gun, riding to be a hero, siding with fear and a toy for the devil. It is not till the end he will hear; this is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

A new victim is brought into the world at the rim of our hearts and because of her precious face we embrace right away. It is not till later we find she is blind, and needless to say challenged in the mind. Love disappears without a trace because of fear we won’t erase. Her tears brake so the advantage we take to bring her down and make her drown in her own sob. It is not until she is ripped apart that we feel we have done our job. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

They live on the street, Born on their feet, and every now and then get beat. They may be dirty and a little then, but that’s just because of where they’ve been. All they have is the man in the skies. No one dares look into their eyes, for it will uncover their demise. They will have to face up to their own lies. They may not have any money or riches galore, but they have god, and that’s more than the rich can sell in a store. The rich unwilling to see turn away acting more than they will ever be. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

A woman being beat, brought to your feet, and yet we retreat. She reaches for your hand, but what she receives is sand. He continues to reveal the marks just the same, but she’s too lost in her shame, she doesn’t know who to blame. Everyone stares, but no one dares or even acts if they care. The one who pays the most is the unborn child at one time she did bare. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

A man of another race tries to make his place. Everyone’s taking up his space. Everyone sees the pain on his face, and still no one stands for the love of grace. His life is taken on a cross; at it was for Jesus, our loss. All that remains of his life are names and faces of his children and wife. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

A teenagers dead, messed up in the head, it’s all because of drugs, yet we won’t see why he’s dead. We even deny what’s being said. We sill buy, sell, and take knowing what’s at stake. We will keep trying. But in the end it’s our family that’s crying. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

We turn away when others pay. We don’t even have anything to say; yet we know it’s not ok. We ridicule a person created different and it’s their lives we rated. We cheat ourselves in fate of a love so great that we will never see, what they can relate, and what they can be. We defeat ourselves, for what we fear to stand of give a hand. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray?

We forget what god has given us, and just how many times can he save us? He cries as our faith dies, but he continues to give second tries. So many people flee, because they don’t want to see how the love of god has set them free. This is how we throw our faith away. This is the way it leaves us day to day. Why is it god we betray? Why is it we make ourselves pay?
