TOO LATE? by J.E. Caswell


TOO LATE?

I once knew a older con artist

Who went through a moral catharsis

His deceiving ways

Were parted like haze

When the Son rose up in his “heartsis.”

This older con man on the lam

Just ‘happened’ to meet the I AM…

His old self was burned

And character turned

From cruddy into Superman.

The older met up with a younger

And tried to pass on his new hunger

For the Lord God of Man

But the boy wouldn’t stand

For the wheezing of that old one-lung-er.

The old ex-con’s eyes start to glisten

As he pleads with the kid just to listen…

The kid only thought

He’ll never get caught,

Couldn’t see his redemption was missing.

How can we reach our sons and daughters

Of the next generation with “oughters”…

They see what we do

In life to get through,

Rejecting God’s living, pure waters?

In the end, supernatural cues

May be what they cannot refuse…

Seeing their own way

In a mirror display

That shows them what they have to choose.

—J.E. Caswell
