How Long?

How long am I to cry?

But will the Lord hear me?

The violence is why,

Will He come set me free?

 

Why does He show me wrong?

And watches wickedness;

Destruction does prolong,

Having such aggressiveness.

 

That is why His teaching,

Like justice not held out;

Comfort from His reaching,

For easing any doubt.

 

Look among the nations,

Amazed and astonished;

With decayed relations,

Treaties have abolished.

 

Nations fierce and reckless,

They march throughout the earth;

Making others worthless,

Some lives not see their birth.

 

They are terrifying,

As well being fearsome;

Justice glorifying,

That has been so loathsome.

 

Their horses are faster,

Riders from far away;

Acting as the master,

Like a bird after prey.

 

They come for violence,

Face covered with a mask;

Have taken residence,

In their mosques that they bask.

 

They treat rulers as jokes,

In a refuge city.

Some treat it as a hoax,

No one will take pity.

 

They will move like the wind,

When God will show their guilt;

Not being disciplined,

From the sin that they built.
