Bibles and Guns

by Miss. J 4 years ago in social commentary

A Plea from a College Girl

Put down your bible

Put down your gun

Look around

Veterans in streets

Starving children

Young girls


With the baby of a stranger

And your worried

About a man not loving a woman?

You're worried about

What a coffee cup looks like

Open your eyes

See what this world needs

We don’t all need Jesus

Those who want to believe will

What we need is a world

Where love can destroy hate

Thirst can be quenched

Light can overpower the dark

Hungar will be no more

Streets will have flowers

Where people used to lie

Put down your Bible

Put down your gun

Look up

Take my hand

Open your heart

Clear your mind

See with your soul

Hear with your heart

And speak with your actions

Put down your Bible

Put down your gun

And see what can be done

The world is scary

It’s beautiful

It’s cruel

But if everyone opened up

We could destroy cruelty

Smite fear

And live together

In Love


And Harmony.

I'm a college student from small town Nebraska. My major is Elementary Education with an endorsement in k-6 special education. I'm a bit of a nerd too, but really I'm just a 23 year old who's trying to figure out this thing called "LIFE" :)
