We are members of a different generation
the radicals, the “biggest” answer seekers
who walk further away from the status quo,
questioning everything our fathers believed
We’ve seen more tech advancements than wars
and lived more Instagram likes than famine
our definition of truth is blurred and uncertain
we have chosen the path of blind wisdom
Our laws are based on “the rights” of the people
“the right thing” for the people is set ablaze
in the fires of greed, lust, inequity and rage
doing what feels right, with no regard for “the right”
depending only on our limited knowledge
searching just in places mortal eyes can see
ignoring the path that leads to life’s truth
looking unto vanity that leaves us desolate.
But history has shown…atleast to those who see
that men are not gods to know beyond the now
the soothsayers may predict what comes next
but only the Almighty knows for sure
Did you see how far we’ve vamoosed from him?
like the tribe of Benjamin, we have all fallen
and all that’s left is the hand of mercy and grace
from his throne to ours, Lord, please send us Judges.
