    “Seek the Kingdom of Heaven”–is a perilous search;
    “Hunger and thirst”…uncovers the world too much.
    “Body parts and passions” express the glory of God;
    Entangles a soul in a shallow world, is sensually odd.

    “Seek the Kingdom of Heaven”–is a perilous search;
    “Hunger and thirst”…uncovers the world too much.
    “Body parts and passions” express the glory of God;
    Entangles a soul in a shallow world, is sensually odd.

    “Become one with me!…as I, in my Father’s way.”
    “Ye are not mine”…except, “all as one” earthly stay.
    “Love thy neighbor”…that thy soul may be divine;
    “Trust not!…in the arm of flesh”…in a world of time.

    Esteem thyself…low, for “pride cometh before a fall!”
    Souls are great in His sight, so long as they are naught.
    Abasement of self…reaches up a small degree higher;
    Embracing the truth reveals…the crafty edge of a liar.

    God’s thoughts are hardly pleased to agree with you;
    Moral character changes, by who tells you what to do.
    “Yesterday…today…forever”–is a mountain of light;
    Your best opinion, will never change wrong…to right.

    One valid chance allows us to dwell with God on high;
    We must resist the offer of that…damned father of lies.
    With courage, descend into a hole…reaching for a top;
    There is no success on earth greater than a lowly flop.

    Entrap a tender heart of some beautiful fleshy desire;
    “Love God Almighty”…and, become a productive sire.
    “Have no other gods”…to embrace within thy cherish;
    Bind her heart with all thy love, or “thou shalt perish.”

    “A man is not without the woman…in the Lord.”
    Life begins and ends…with a trust for tricky words.
    “A woman is not without the man”…if, she chooses;
    Trust the love of flesh…is valid, until, the man looses.

    A cad, and a “jackass”…emerging from the Bible;
    “Sweat from his brow”…is hardly enough for a label.
    His testament of truth…is sincerely gentle and kind;
    But, he must love the world, if he will deserve mine.

    Romantic passions are impelled with purpose design;
    Searching for happiness…by following a lovely sign.
    Experiencing a physical sensation–in a body of flesh;
    Trusting that lust, will never foil…love’s alluring mesh.

    Life is all around…sounding complaints of every kind.
    “The straight and narrow path” is a whimsical line.”
    Romance obliges trust; passions will not be ignored;
    Believe in suspicion!…God will allow flesh–to be sure.

    “Do unto others” by just “turning the other cheek.”
    This good ole earth…belongs to the suffering meek.
    Christ’s crucifixion…pays for the sinners who repent;
    The straight and narrow…attracts ways that are bent.

    “Agree with thy adversary” who seeks your destruction;
    Supreme intervention…is a miracle under construction.
    Your battered cheeks–glow red…with a life of blood;
    Enemies strive for heaven…for an act of brotherhood.

    Pleasure enthralls the soul…through grapes of wrath;
    Going the wrong way–traveling on a righteous path.
    A journey–the right way, on paths of worldly pursuit;
    “The world is too much with us”…ironically, we loose.

    The wise are obliged to act with wisdom–at a sting,
    Regardless of what paradoxical situations may bring.
    Gracefully, sacred things measure divine reverence.
    “Overcome the world”; glory invites your severance.
