A Mother's Lament

 

When against the

            Flow of common sense

                      The mind endeavors go

 

The rationale of life and

            Love conflicts

                        With what is so.

 

There then exists

            No limits,

                        No curfews, curbs, or cause

 

Only “self” controls

            And ridicules

                        The basic human law

 

Here there are no barriers

            No boundaries

                        For the boudoir

 

Thus we will see

            The sacred scattered

                        Beyond both near and far

 

When holiness is hollow

            And defined by time

                        And place

 

The safe, secure, selection

            Is denounced

                        But never faced

 

The standard voice

            Of reason

                        Is trampled by the shouts

 

Of the insecure

            Demanding that

                        Brokenness “come out.”

 

All the while

            The family in the

                        Shadows stand

 

Weeping for the

            Loved one

                        That’s in a foreign land

 

Disregard for

            Century’s truth

                        Disdain for God’s one plan

 

The liberated

            Lovers stand on

                        Sordid sinking sand

 

No tears

            Or broken hearts

                        Will fix or bridge the gap

 

Only blind approval

            Causes those progressive

                        Hands to clap

 

And in the end

What will become

Of those who enter in?

It all depends on

The label given:

Unbridled “love” or sin.
