Some would tell its this way, your heart might say No.


So the world moves on

like a drunk singing an odd song

it is so out of tune

all the words are wrong.

Yet you cannot say anything

the drunk

they do not listen nor understand,

so it is with God

as he looks at this world

and the ways of man.

Just always remember

view it through Gods eyes

maybe when they are sober

they might wake up

come to their senses

realize.

There is a lot of things

that God decreed

would happen at the appointed time,

so when we see

things that offend

things we do not agree with

make sure we see them

through Gods eyes.

For just as in the days of Noah

so the end will be

and if the 'drunk' of this world do not listen

then as God decreed

so it will be.

I'm sober and I'm not going to waste my time "listening" to silence as though it were telling me something. I prefer Simon and Garfunkel's Sounds of Silence, to listening to what somebody is preaching.
