The Meaning That You’re Seeking (a poem)

The meaning that you’re seeking isn’t
Found in every crowd
Their messages on megaphones are
Shouted out too loud

And not all will support you
Not everyone’s a friend
You find something is lacking and you
Feel the thirst again

Listen to discomfort (it may)
Teach you something new
Some gatherings and groups and folks are
Simply not for you

The meaning that you’re seeking isn’t
Found in every crowd
And when your people show up then your
Heart is lost & found

Brains of Mush and Hearts of Stone (A Poem)

“God without goodness is fanaticism and goodness without God will not long endure.”
-Dennis Prager (Orthodox Jew)

“Godlessness makes hearts of stone and brains of mush, and every bit of cruelty we see society embrace is a result of that.”
-Allie Beth Stuckey (Southern Baptist)

Godlessness and Atheism
Thinking we’re alone
Turns a head of brains to mush
Transforms a heart to stone

Taken to the full conclusion
Of what you believe
There’s no inherent value
But what you can achieve

We all worship something
Self or sex or sin
Always at least one thing
We elevate within

Non-aggression, love and justice
Peace and liberty
Come from Christian and Judeo
Objectivity

Of all the ethics, principles
We hold high and applaud
The truest moral compass
Will always point to God”

We need strong Christians who can defend the truth against moral relativism and militant atheism.”
-D. Todd Christofferson (member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints)
