As the West, Oozes Into the Sea

                                  As the West, Oozes Into the Sea

In the past 100 years, more Christians died for the faith, than in all prior centuries combined.
In 2016, an estimated 90,000 Christians were put to death for their faith in Christ.
Since the Islamic Caliphate was declared in 2014, Christians are nearly extinct in the Middle East. Then, under the disguise of immigration, Islamic terrorists have infiltrated all over Europe. Many Christians were thrown overboard on their way by Muslims. Less than 3% of all immigrants fleeing are Christian. Christian women are being raped all over Europe. It is only a matter of time, America shall suffer the same fate. But, as Christians, we know, in the end, Christ prevails. Though, this poem is dark, it is also light, to remind all Christians, that the gates of hell shall not prevail against the Glory of the Most High.

         Here, there...no-where to flee,
     As the West, oozes into the sea.
Is this our final destiny?

We are burning.
We are yearning.
We are discerning.

To the tune of the Titanic.
We are sinking.
We are drinking.
We are thinking.

As we slowly plunge into the abyss,
Here, there... no-where...to flee,
As the West, oozes into the sea.

Only in pain, can we find ourselves, again.
We are dreaming.
We are screaming.
We are gleaming.

In distant visions of heaven and earth,
We are weeping.
We are sleeping.
We are creeping.

In an ever fading American Dream,
Here, there and no-where, to flee.
As the West, oozes into the sea.

Only in pain, can we find ourselves, again.
Our nation, scattered.
Our heads, splattered.
Our lives, shattered.

The one door left, is all that matters.
Where earth shall be clinging.
Where heavens are singing.
Where Christ is bringing...

Here, there and everywhere...
The wisest  place to flee...
The Merciful Heart of He.

Oh! How terrible; yet, wonderful,
To live in a century,
Where the most saints ever did flee,
For the greater glory of He!

Here, there and everywhere,
As the West oozes into the sea,
Saints all over the globe, rise up!
For the greater glory of He!
