The Lonely Leper (Poetry)

All I wanted was happiness and peace
Using divinity... to fight the power of the beast
I could see the promise land… it was in my reach
But I’ve been cast away… I’ll soon lay deceased

They fear my power… the power of love
They seek external power… my power is above
Dressed in garments… their hands covered in gloves
Why must they condemn… why must they judge?

One day I approached them… lifted up their sleeves
They called on their God… they dropped to their knees
It was then that they saw they were so naïve
When they unwrap their garments, and their masks that deceive
It turns out they were stricken with the same disease

Disconnected (Poetry)

We were made to love… made to give
Made to evolve… made to live
Technology is with us… it is our friend
A heartless compassionate… with a helping hand to lend
But we grabbed the hand and forced in deception
In turn… we have turned in the wrong direction
Dictating surveillance… belittling our heart
Armageddon is upon us… we shall soon depart
Power… control… supremacy… fear
Watching our forests and gardens disappear
The trees turn to paper… the paper turns to dollars
We turn to the scholars… instead of turning to the father
Connected to television… disconnected from the truth
Connected to traditions… disconnected from the youth
Connected to structures… disconnected from nature
Connected to books… disconnected form the creator
Connected to hate… disconnected from love
Disconnect from technology… RE-connect with He above
