none quick enough

De hosts “quick” quadrille at dVerse and I remembered the line from Apostles’ Creed. “Quick” may be archaic for “living” (which we use now) but still fits.


 

“He will come to judge the quick and the dead.”

who appoints us
to be another’s judge?

who designates our
high court as supreme?

who dares to live
as law unto himself?

Someday each one will tremble
on holy ground in Judge Jesus’ presence.

 

 

for us and our posterity…

 

liberty in law

men died for independence

let’s govern ourselves

constitutional freedoms

preserved in the bill of rights

 

 

 

Linking to Frank J. Tassone’s Haiku Challenge

elusive dream

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.”   – Martin Luther King, Jr.

 

What happened
to distinctly american
dream

of liberty & justice IMG_4629
for ALL,

equal opportunity
regardless
of race?

What happened
to respect
for human life,

our constitutional
law & order,

non-violent freedom of
speech & assembly?

What happened
to ONE nation

under God?

Wake to dream again!
