The overwhelming light
of tomorrow’s day.
When hope is greater
than the sum of dreams
broken in forgotten time.
as half-empty glasses
pour out onto surfaces
for tepid fate.
Give me hope and
Let me abide within
arms of comfort and
You offer a heart
filled with promise anew;
love forgotten becomes love
warm nights recede to
wisps of clouds
in eerie veil.
to a cutting edge.
dew on grass
the cog slows and
rotation finds respite
sadly moisture through
the veins of leaves
long has passed.
I sit and wonder
and ponder time –
cycles of seasons
over and over
sometimes barely hanging on
as unbearable is
mired in self-pity
gnawing at the core
of my being.
I cry for those
whose slippery grip
fails and thoughts
of failing overwhelm
and lies are hiding
the truth that succeeding
is in sanctuary
where in a second
the universe is
visible to the naked eye
because one takes the
time to sit with
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
John 14:6 (NKJV)
a certain question with the answer a certain evasion
it is man leaning upon his wisdom
with his inner self wearily burdened
as he seeks this question of all times –
a question he seeks all his life: “what is truth?”
and with self-certainty and determination
he prods for the one answer through a limited, desperate means,
that we who are God’s children see in an instant
So then to gain life we must lose our own.
how can something be gained when it is certain it must first be cast off?
this wisdom is higher than man’s limited means but it is God’s truth.
for we leave a life in shadows for a life in Light
and this new life is full of vigor, this new life is goodness
refreshed and renewed each and every day
there is joy in our heart, in this new life
O Lord, the thanks we give You
Yes there is a sure and certain way
A path worn into the dusty earth by the sandals of Jesus,
loosed and baptized, wilderness tested, we know to follow His way
but how far Lord? to crucifixion’s certain end – our dread?
crucifixion is resurrection’s certainty – our beginning and surprised joy.
it now seems so natural and we try not to reason, but just follow, the glory of God is at hand!
He shows rebirth unfurl to new life
with loss of the past a certainty – fear and grieve not.
Struggle is certain for man so keen with driven wit
in finding answers to his one consistent question:
“what is truth?”
truth is at a point, on top of the highest mountain
where we certainly shall find God – together
let us all look to Him from the place we stand
in agreement, with many eyes fixed, for He has our best interest
and shows us life, truth, way through His love.
