    Idle Man Searching



    Still a hand full of nothingness
    Still Baseless, Still Pointless, Still Moving Slow
    No Value, No Movement, No Progress
    No today, No tomorrow, No ever
    Know GOD, His Plan, His Son, Your Sins
    Confess Now, Just Repent, Be Saved
    No Need, Perhaps Tomorrow, Got to get Right
    Yet Another Night
    Continue doing nothing with unholy hands
    No Map, No Direction, No Salvation Plan

    Get involved with Worldly Obsessions
    Get Money, Get Power, Get Gains
    Got ideas, Got desire, Got emotion
    Getting Close, Got Nothing Again

    Keep seeking, never trying
    Hoping the results will be different
    Little effort, Little progress, Little purpose achieved
    Still searching your place, lack of HIS Spirit in thee

    -Orson Algernon Valley

    our society is so much focus on material progress...forgetting spirituality and the soul because it seems kinda irrational in the modern world rule by pragmatism...I love the sentiments here...

    Politicians and businessmen are very good example of this truthful lines. They never stop seeking worldly material gain. The lines in this piece is very inspiring for those seeking the Truth.

    Truly great message. I'll get involved after I gain riches and power. That's a good kick in the pants for all of us who just think we have forever to get it together. Thank you for another good lesson.

    Wow! This is great work! I truly love how this poem was put together. Few words make Powerful Words! Super!

    Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.

    Plato (BC 427-BC 347) Greek philosopher.
