Soft Sell

Image result for jesus and a modern man

It’s alright

For you to say No

For you to try another seat belt

But a crash is coming

Bodies and baselines will fly.

I told folks this

Business as usual one day

Would not be

And the old family

Sayings would shatter

And earth would reel

Like a roulette wheel

All numbers showing up black.

But some through the years

Watched me pray

Watched me bless, forgive

Watched me receive the jabs

And die a blameless death

Blameless and beckoning

Breaking and begetting

While all else simply was getting

And greedily getting.

So go ahead…consider

Choose and live out consequences


I won’t push.
