OFFSPRING by Gary Bertnick


Children of Israel, natural or “grafted in”
Descendants of faith given as a true life force,
Spirit power greater than gravity
Power greater than heat or cold
Greater than any chemistry or biochemistry
Greater than any emotion or inspired will, any intuition,
Beyond human imagination.
Such treasures we have discovered in words written long ago
Spoken into eternity;
Hearts are torn as tears of repentance flow
And a veil is lifted, things hidden for so long
Now seen in the brilliance of the face of our Messiah.
The suffering of generations
Pains of childbirth have gone on far too long
Holy Spirit revelation comes from above
Things written on the mind , with clear understanding
Now made known to all willing hearts.
Demands of survival in this world overwhelming
Fleeting and foolish, false money security
Seeds sown methodically with discipline long ago
Yet, fruit withers on trees,
Vines dried up as so many wandered alone
As castoffs scattered
Separated from destined reality usurped,
Oh, the weight of generations
The crushing heartache!
Suddenly ancient words have come alive
Prophets of old become new-
Zechariah and Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel
All the others faithful, obedient as Moses,
The weight of love driven responsibility
Burden of Godly care shouldered,
Plan of the Divine One
At last in meticulous precision made clear;
Finally the children of Israel have turned
Broken hearts, a nation of tribes, joined to their Eternal Lord
The refuge often spoken of by King David.
