I am tired of waiting for justice,
Surrounded by the arrogant browbeater,
He talks constantly, promising everything,
Everything said is just lies that drown the truth,
A puffed up ego that talks about himself constantly,
His noise a constant harping in my ear,
He chooses words that seek to demean,
Questioning my motives and integrity,
When he is only seeking his own well being,
Put downs are the only way he can feel lifted up.
The destruction wielded by arrogance,
Is seen in the carnage left from his actions,
He only knows how to take from the poor,
While pretending to give gifts,
None of this escapes God’s attention,
Not one selfish act is ever forgotten,
Every put down recorded,
To make sure that God’s justice will be done.
When arrogance cannot be at the centre,
He shrinks in his own foolishness,
Futility become his reward,
For the chest beating self praise he gives,
Soon the inheritance of God’s children,
Will be arrogance’s daily irritation,
As he seeks to justify the pain,
Caused by his lies and venom.
God is not afraid of human arrogance,
None will escape his watchful eye,
Justice is waiting and will soon confront arrogance,
The pause is to ensure God’s perfect time,
That day will turn the tables completely,
Eternity’s breath bringing life,
While arrogance will soon meets its end,
Reward for those who know God’s voice,
Frightening justice for those who only heard their own.
I seek an open heart this morning Lord,
To the words that you have for me,
My shelter, from the barrage of hate,
That sought to end all hope.
Now I wake each day to Love’s first desire,
That seeks out to embrace each broken child,
To take all the pain given by selfish arrogance,
To bring me to your peace again.
