Half Lives

Man with Withered HandWhen you enter the House of Prayer
and, finding it a Den of Thieves
go. Is is time for something New?

Clear zeal for one
but when they refuse to answer questions
like they did with you
would you just passively ignore
or were you stirred to anger?

Oh gently comes the stretched out hand
is it offered in friendship or poised to strike?

Regardless
you can let my life offer the chance to heal
or you can see it as a danger;
come to destroy and reduce
your foundations to rubble.

Best to ridicule,
to avoid
the ridiculous idea
he might be right.

Mark 3:5
