Conning God

4 Jan

“There is no God higher than truth.”  ~Mahatma Gandhi

Conning God

This message is for warriors
Who serve a higher power
An overseeing creator
Who lights their darkest hour

This message is a warning to
All those who think they’re clever
Who think that they can con God with
An effort or endeavour

The ones who perpetrate a farce
Of how busy they are
No time for their family
But time to hit the bar

Too busy to help some more
But some time left to view
All their favourite TV shows
Which waste time and subdue

They fool a number of people
“They seem so busy now!”
But here, today, I guarantee
And make them this stern vow:

One force that they cannot con
Is the one known as God
Despite their furrowed brow and stress
He sees through their facade

He knows the ones who are held back
By comfort, search of ease
And making more of what they do
Does nothing but displease

They cannot con a God and say
“I’m doing all I can!”
After all, He saw them walk
When they all could have ran

You cannot con a God and try
To be out for yourself
And every now and then disperse
A morsel of your wealth

Men and women are not hard
To cajole and convince
That is why the warrior
Will rarely ever mince

Their words to gain approval or
Acceptance of a peer
But God’s a different story, He
Can see the truth quite clear

He cannot be convinced, coerced
Persuaded or deceived
He knows our limits, not the ones
We wish to be perceived

If the day should come when you
Are before the Creator
I have a feeling He won’t be
That much of a debater

Techniques and tricks we use on others
To sell “busyness”
May enamour all of them
But God it won’t impress

Always hold on to this truth:
Our limits go beyond
What we think they are, and truth
Is something we can’t con

    True what I’ve heard said: ‘The truth will piss you off….then it will set you free.’ Great poem, Miro. xo

    None of us can escape the ‘Truth’ when we meet our maker.. as I have been told on more than one occasion from my spirit side brothers and sisters.. We review all our actions.. .. I know that many do heed their responsibilities thinking little of the consequences.. I wonder if they realised that our THOUGHTS are our first responsibility. Keep on Writing your inspired words of Wisdom Miro.. I hope they all sink into the minds that read them..

      ( Many Do NOT heed their responsibilities… Error of typing ))

      Yes, it’s all about the consequences. If consequences are always clearly identified and accepted, then there’s no remorse. No sorrys. No regret. No guilt. That’s true grace.
      Peace & grace,
