Reflection on the Great Commandment

You shall love the Lord with all your heart
And with all your soul and with all your mind.
So rejoice always, pray without ceasing,
give thanks, and to each other be kind.

For you shall love your neighbor as yourself
And no longer walk as the Gentiles do.
Put off your old self which is corrupt
And in the spirit of your minds, be renewed.

On these two commandments depend all the Law.
So let’s love one another since love is from God,
Shown by his death on the glorious cross
To save us from sin: the flawless facade.

Booming Voice

Silent explosions amidst the stars.
Booming voices that created Mars.
Yet Earth only his finger is placed
To fillĀ it with creatures the devil faced.

All of creation has now withered
Thanks to the one who now slithers.
But a complex plan has been made
And ages later death is slayed.

God is never seen yet is all-seeing
Of all the actions of human beings.
His guiding voice amidst speeding cars
Now leads our souls beyond the stars.
