Our roots drink from a soil of renewed casting;
Drunk (in a past),
Yet soon to be fulfilled (everlasting).
Our trunks are girded with layered shields -
Armored, that we may weather this ground
(As beacons among fields).
Our branches are gifted as arms – reaching up and out;
Stemmed, intricate connections overcome all drying doubts.
Our leaves provide an enveloping canopy
(Where rain kisses these lips).
Veins flow in unison – accepting and open to all quenching tips.
This body prepares us for answers – of what will be sent;
Wholly planted, we shall share in reasons – of what the stages meant.
The Sun leads us through seasons – of sustenance, growth, thirst.
Light, that we may seed, shines evenly – so the last may become first.
A cycle gives us chances to discover
An abundance of everything in need;
Eventual to a pattern -
Within time is a setting -
Where those called shall be freed.
Sheer “ignorance” and pure hypocrisy continue, as imposed by a (dwindling) minority force – those who have opportunities to utilize intelligence and available “knowledge” – but refuse to accept (awakening) winds of change. There are combinations, of course – where utilization and availability are realized (to degrees/stages), yet control, thus power, must (as some deem necessary) override – since freedom of access might infringe upon entitled goals.
Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 17: “Allah accepts only the repentance of those who do evil in ignorance and (their) foolishness and repent soon afterwards; To them will Allah turn in mercy: For Allah is full of knowledge and wisdom.” Jesus The Son of Man: ” “But I tolerate not the hypocrite, because he himself lays a yoke upon the guileless and the yielding.”
As noted/sung by Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam), “deceit kills the light.” If women and female children are denied equal education windows, what does that say/represent about the Fear in related men (and how far deceptions may shadow – over thousands of years, like stoning)? It is possible, while “On the Road to Find Out,” to “kick out the devil’s sin” and “pick up [a] good book” – without denying one’s growth through learning (advancements), and especially without denying others
Surah 4. An-Nisaa, 1: “He (Allah) created his mate of similar nature.” John 8:7: “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” And, “He that is without sin among you, let him first [fire a gun] at her.”
Here is the Truth that invites.
Now is the Chance to realize.
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends:
With the Lord a day is like a thousand years,
and a thousand years are like a day.”
