Like rotten fruit, corrupted children

Fighting over toys in a huge sandbox

Acting out as controllers, bullies, manipulators

Or thinking of ways to always “get even”

With a parent, a sibling, a cousin, a stranger

A little sister coddled by Mom or Dad

Unforgiveness, resentment, bitterness swells in a bad seed

Grows possibly as a colorful weed

Pretending even as a wildflower

Quick and easy entry into any lie learned,

The pleasure, the cunning of falsehood

Juggles and dances with clever relative truth, or half-truth;

A child’s new twisted intellect rises above

Set apart

Often stands alone stubbornly

Self exhults in living through a moment

Brushes aside consequences of “tomorrow”

Squeezes out all of today in rebellion

As a politician with a crisis,

Knowingly or unknowingly in greed

Whether seen or unseen in lust

Holding hands with evolutionary darkness, even drug enhanced

Familiar, habitually in step with evil,

Evolution of evil in Lucifer’s expanding domain absent any conscience,

In another numbed, strutting soul, easily swallowed whole.




About Gary Bertnick

I was a Minnesota teenager in the late 1960's. I was drafted into the military after an intense time at an engineering school. As a graduate chemical engineer and former athlete, I became a Marine Corps private. The Lord spoke to me through a friend while visiting Rapid City,S.D. My true discipleship began in Southern California and was boosted through association with Morris Cerullo Ministry and others. I fed upon the Scriptures and have learned to be led by the Holy Spirit. I know what the fear of the Lord is. What I write is done to honor the Lord and to touch the lives of those who know Him as well as those who should.
