Reason for Writing

The Word of life is from the start,
Something written within the heart;
We have heard as well as have seen,
What is now and always has been.

We observe and can also touch,
For it can reveal to us much;
As long as we do not defy,
But proclaim as we testify.

Eternal life as we report,
Those non-believers cannot sort;
Of the meaning or the reason,
Against a trend that is treason.

The popular trend that is law,
They do not see what is the flaw;
And feel it is morally right,
Not in staying within the light.

But the Word does not change in time,
Becoming lenient on a crime;
Since it has always stayed the same.
As I continue to proclaim.

So this is why I will still write,
Still others are seeing the light;
For the life we have seen and heard,
Not changed as written in the Word.
