He Didn’t Make Evil


He didn’t make evil,

He makes us free,


Energizes us in

Ev’ry second,


Leaves us free to act out,

Lets us decide,


So too, we live in sin;

Short, Exemplar,


We fall flat. Your Ways are

Wasted in us;


When the earth does tremble,

We don’t see but


Partially; we lash out,

Praying: stop it!


But let us see the whole,

Bring us Your light!


We’ll be more rev’rent and

Witness to God;


Won’t attack our neighbors,

Write terr’ble posts,


Or speak badly of each

Other! Can we?


John gave us his vision:

Jesus, Heaven;


Our reward and Heaven

Our hope! despair


Not, emboldened, our step

Now marching the


Narrow, through thick, thin, and

New suffering!


You didn’t make evil,

You made us free.

    Gary - Peace!

    But if this God of yours left us free, abdicated all responsibility, of what relevance is your God anyway?

    Take care of yourself.

      A loving God; waiting to see if we will freely choose to love him back during our one and only lifetime. When we die - the choice we have made in our hearts to freely love God or not is final - hence: the quality of our everlasting life we freely choose: Heaven or Hell. Choose correctly my friend - the quality of your everlasting life depends upon it.

      It ain't me poetry 'posts' that are terrible, but if I sing 'em, the whole state of things chases to horror! lol 🙂

        Thank you Orchidee! Yes, I wrote that line convinced by the many uncharitable posts we are each capable of writing on this wonderful phenomena known as social media. Cheers my friend!

          I was charitable with my donations. Well, sort of! I send I would send them a cheque/check - but for one pound (one dollar in your money?!). lol.
