If you could see or imagine what God's Heart is like, would it be like this?

A Dedication To The Heavenly Father

I wrote this poem a while back, at a time when I was meditating and contemplating the events of the world, and how The Creator would view everything which is happening in and to His creations. This, is how I imagine His Heart would be like :

Spilling red wine from a cut -
Tears from His eyes, blood from His wound,
In the Father's Heart.

Spoils of war brazenly exploited,
Sunken cheeks, gnarled bodies of starvation;
Broken spirits and hopeless minds -
The Father's Heart is shaken.

Famine, war, lives in chaos,
Man's world torn apart;
There is many a wound freshly made,
In the Father's Heart.

Greed and desire to want and to have,
Stabbing own brothers in fulfilling own dreams;
Never giving, always taking -
The Father's Heart is broken it seems.

Yet justly forgiven and lovingly taken
Unto Himself many a load;
To give His Hand and to ease the pains -
‘tis the Father Heart of God.

Rivers of Living Water,
Flowing unchecked from the start,
Quenching thirsts, full contentment,
From the Father's Heart.

Tender and joyous and all-time loving,
Wholly Godly from the start;
Green and fertile for Peace planting -
This is my Father's Heart.

There is hope, and faith will have it's foundation on this hope, as long as the world exists and tomorrow comes.

Author's note : All mistakes are mine, all Glory to God :)
