What we thought was impossible

Through a lack of knowledge

Not living accordingly

But willing to compromise

A life of self-worth

Imposing this attitude

Upon anyone, you come in contact with

A vain and selfish character

Strutting through the streets

Overlooking the homeless

With a closed ear to that family member

Or willing to do whatever it takes to be on top

Who are you?

And what have you become?

Pleasing oneself

Can only last, but so long

Wake up foolish pride

It’s time to regain that compassionate heart

That you deliberately tossed aside.

What you see today

Could be your tomorrow

 

There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple

and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

Luke 16:19 KJV

And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus,

which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

Luke 16:20 KJV

 

And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from

the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

Luke 16:21 KJV

 

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried

by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

Luke 16:22 KJV

 

And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,

and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

Luke 16:23 KJV

 

And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send

Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water,

and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

Luke 16:24 KJV

 

But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime

receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things:

but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. 

Luke 16:25 KJV
