A contemplation
"Charity" by Suzanna Ray
They say that charity never fails
but if that were so, why are jails
full of those who felt so desperate
they committed crimes that can never be forgiven,
by God
 
They say that certain tales
have led men to hunt whales
amidst giant waves so steep,
that by combining the tides, winds
and currents of superstition
escape God.

They say with canvas and nails
you can build a ship that sails
across miles of ocean so deep
that those commissioned at times
divinely driven
discover God

Charity hidden world beyond the veils
of good works and words,  fails
when searching for dignity
and finding the treasure comprising of help
from God

 How far must I walk on these trails
to find peace, the power that quails
not at the thought of hell or dungeons
where men are compensated for their deeds
by God
