Empires Rise and Fall
Poetry and Music By Andrew Pell

Empires rise and fall.
They fall because they do not heed God’s call.
Throughout history it has been the same old story.
“Self-aggrandizement and personal glory.”
God gave them their limited allotment in history.
Their sudden rise to power is no mystery.
They had forgotten that God controls destiny.
It is there in the open for all to see.
Empires and Emperors thirst for blood.
They inturn will crumble and their foundations will turn to mud.
Those who live by the sword will die by the sword.
This warning from God cannot be ignored.
From the dawn of time man wanted to conquer his neighbour and rule.
Power, lust and greed are the bastion of an irreligious fool.
Empires rise and fall.
But the kingdom of God will grow forever and stand solid and tall.
