Are You Prepared?

They have spoken of Him among the nations.
Some have listened,
others have turned their ears
to sweet tasting vices.
How long will the flavor last
on your tongue
before it becomes sour.

You have heard His name
spoken from mountain tops
and city streets.
Some embrace the truth,
others ignore.
The pleasures of shadowy corners,
Darkness smooths every scar.

Are you prepared,
now that all nations have heard?
Are you carrying your lamp,
lit brightly,
with plenty of oil?
Is the thought in your heart
a prayer
or a fornication of His word?
