Moral Values continue to decay in our society and thus inspired meto write this poem.


Where have all our values gone.....
  It appears life is just a game
There seems to be no right or wrong
  Only few care that Jesus came.

Where have all our values gone...
  Concern is in life’s pleasures
Free lifestyle and desire to belong
  In Heaven should be our treasures.

Where have all our values gone.....
  For sin there is no shame
Wealth is attained in words of song,
  Excuses used are very lame.

Where have all our values gone...
  The Bible is seldom read
Some won’t sing a Christmas song,
  Jesus is alive, he is not dead!

Where have all our values gone...
  The way of Jesus must be told
By words, deeds or action shown
 So all can walk the streets of gold.

I like this free style rhymed composition... "Values Gone" flows wisely on the musical tracks of a wondrous river of poetic enchantment.

I salute You, Poet!

Hello Pearl,

I can see the honesty and strong beliefs in your poem. I try to live by the Golden Rule and although I was raised as a Catholic, I now have no religious affiliation. I don't feel the need to accept Jesus or any other prophet and rely on my inner self to keep me sane. I'm sorry, but someone else that shares your religion may be better suited to make your poem into a song.

Happy Holidays to you and your family!

Sometimes I wonder the same thing...
nicely done...
Reviewed by Phillip William Allen 12/11/2004
Our values have gone into the pockets of attorneys who want to make cash on the separation of church and state. Also they make cash by sueing teachers who need to apply a good swat to those misbehaving causing discern among other students. They also make cash by putting fear into parents who need to apply minor punishment at home. Yes there are good attorneys, but lets face it. When that profession is one of the most well paid, and their pay usually comes from someones pain and suffering, maybe we need to start a national front against them and their petty law suits.

A heartfelt write! I commend you for expressing your beliefs openly and without shame.
