“Cop Out”

in God’s hands
 
many people say it
declare it
but is it true
 
if a man
kills with a gun
was it in God’s hands
or the one holding the gun
 
if a woman
signs papers for an abortion
was it in God’s hands
or the one holding the pen
 
if someone
robs a store
was in God’s hands
or the one holding the goods
 
darkness comes
to steal
kill
and destroy
but many proclaim
 
it’s in God’s hands
 
no
many things are in the hands
of mankind
influenced by darkness
to bring forth
destruction
 

“Along the Journey”

God’s not my GPS
choices are
there are many roads we can take
many turns to the left
and to the right
going forwards
or backwards
making u turns
many different possibilities
God’s definitely one of the routes
but my choices point me in direction
