Ujamaa Christian Poetry

End In Death

There is a way that seems right
But lends itself to confusion
While chasing shadows in the night
Gives way to the art of illusion

What's so precious that's blinding
Where is the focus on what's true
Some promises made are binding
As for wisdom who has a clue

Searching high and low to no avail
Coping with the emptiness within
It seems that darkness would prevail
But the search starts all over again

Where's the satisfaction in all this
Why is the longing still there
By this world's standard we persist
In seeking that elusive treasure so rare

Why keep giving pearls to swine
Holding on with baited breath
Unless we seek the true vine
Our way will only end in death
