THEY WALKED FOR MILES


They walked for miles
to hear His words
now written in a book
in almost every home,
but the tragedy is
the book is seldom opened
unless to read a passage
to prove some group sinful.

The Speaker so many
came to hear is crying.
His tears filling heaven's floor.
It is a second flood 
caused by sin
the sin of hate of others.

If we could only walk
the miles others walk
beside them as they struggle
maybe we would learn
we are condemning folks
just like us who need
to heed the One 
so many walked miles
to hear His words.
