Nothing more than this

From Zephaniah 1-3


Nothing more than this:
doom, nothing can save
or deliver not money
not armies not cleverness
nothing: doom,
what you prize turns
to dust, what you hold dear
finds destruction


Deliverance. No sorrows,
No capture. Deliverance,
rejoicing not sorrow
freedom not oppression 
light not darkness
