Old Man

Flowers and get well soon cards

will not fix it.

Ignite your bones.

Do not be the deaf mute

talking to yourself

inside the dark closet.

Open the door before it’s too late.

Before the chance to save is gone.

Before you can no longer

be the better man.

Do not be the old man

preaching Jesus on the street corner,

offering testimony

from a persuaded life.

Test reality.

Try it out.

Escape the delusion that

words alone can fix it.

They can’t.

You must choose.

We must choose.

to do the right thing

before more innocent millions

are needlessly lost before their time.
