Enigma Weekend Edition Poem: 'The Moon Shines'

The Moon Shines
By A.D.

The moon shines,
the stars twinkle.
The crickets chirp,
and I sit in awe
at a world so beautiful.
God knew what He was doing,
crafting such a place as this.
If only the world was not
crumbling at our fingertips.
If only we were not
destroying one another.
What happened to love
and kindness?
What happened to believing?
Jesus Christ died so that we
may live in heaven with Him.
Why must we turn our backs?
Take a look around at the
world we have created.
I want to grow it.
I will not destroy, not anymore.
