Adrift

From James 4:1:  “Those conflicts and disputes among you, where do they come from?  Do they not come from your cravings that are at war within you?”

Walking their own path

Adrift and alone

Lost in time’s darkness

Hearing nightly groans

 

Ignoring each cry

All tribes go their way

Survival fading

Feeling life betray

 

Following nothing

Pride discolors trust

Tomorrow grows cold

Breathing tasteless dust

 

Speaking harshest words

Tattoo’s lasting sting

Evil for evil

Crashing without wings

 

Blaming each other

Lost in stormy seas

Tribes now divided

Dropping to their knees

 

Praying to Father

Seeking direction

Finding His compass

Making corrections

From James 4:7-8:  “Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.  Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.”
