Are We On the Threshold of Hell?

~C.S. Lewis “The Screwtape Letters”

What’s becoming of our world?

What’s becoming of us?

So much anger, envy and hate. I think C.S. Lewis got it right. How have we strayed so far from loving one another? We can and must be and do better than this.

Be angry and do not sin; ~Ephesians 4:26

With all that is going on it is a time to be angry. But let it be a righteous anger that leads to better things. Not sin, hate and more destruction.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.
~Edmund Burke

The world needs warriors right now. Those who stand in the gap for others with honor and integrity. Warriors who will fight against the darkness, beginning with the darkness in our own hearts.

A Bull $^*! Lie

image

they will tell you
every chance they get
that boys
are not supposed to cry

time to call it
for what it is
a bull$^*! lie

one that we have all
so easily bought into
in one form or another
no matter who we are

take a deep look in
any boy’s eyes
it’s a bull$^*! lie

you see no tears
welling up inside
or rolling gently
down a sloping cheek

a bull$^*! lie
the tears are real
hidden on the inside

for the strength
of our young men
in the face of tragedy
is emotional courage

stop telling our boys
not to cry
it’s a bull$^*! lie

Where are the tender hearted warrior poets that the world so desperately needs to stand in the gap for others and to battle the evil?
