Your Glory shines down upon us all
making the world sparkle in light,
but that’s only from a great distance
for nearer You will see we still fight.
Like children over a wanted toy
immature and selfish to the core,
I wonder how much longer the globe
can handle our stupidity and timeless war?
We can’t seem to see Your love
or past our own selfish arrogance
or how wonderful our world would be
if we all just learned a bit of tolerance.
I wonder if God is ashamed of us all
thinking his creation went badly haywire
or if He gave up on us years ago
when we forgot Him and followed the liar.
