167- Idols

Why pray to an imposter
Why hold up futility
Why claim misplaced loyalty
Why follow false reasoning
You speak lies your heart has conceived
You utter lies your heart has believed

You owe allegiance to
Things that are
Worthless
Impotent
Powerless

You kiss a piece of wood
You caress things you’ve obsessed for
You chase after flattering lips
With misdirected devotion

You’ll never know how fragile life can be
When you live out each day  in vanity
They may go by many titles
But soon they become your secret idols
