Thirty Pieces of Silver

 

By: Stephen Mathews - 2014


The things that I have

And all of my wants

The lust of another

My arrogant thoughts

 

To be better than others

To work up the ladder

Feeling a lite sense of joy

When otherís dreams shatter

 

To judge other people

To slander their names

To damn them to hell

To envy their fame

 

Abortions and lies

Adultery in the heart

Course joking with words

That tear people apart

Deceptions and gossips

To act like a fool

Hatred and malice

To not pay what is due

 

To take whatís not mine

Always asking for more

Spending my time with me

And not helping the poor

 

Picking favorites of friends

Treating others as dirt

To forget about You

No care for my neighborís hurt

 

With all of these things

Iíve betrayed you with haste

Please forgive me oh Lord

These things are all waste
