LINE IN THE SAND… a poem of faith

Image Credit

I drew that line in the sand

But someone wiped it off again

So, I got down on my hands and knees

And drew it back where it had been

Image Credit

No sooner had I turned around

To glare back at the crowd

When someone started laughing

And someone else let out a shout

That line you drew it cannot last

No matter how hard you try

There’s a shadow cast down from a cross

Where Jesus had to die

Image Credit

But in His death, He took with Him

What should come as a surprise

Every sin that’s ever been

Along with every line

N is for Nascent…AtoZChallenge2019

Looking out over the fray

People hover in clustered ineptitude

Like a low lying fog over turbulent waters

They mill around without direction

Yet, I can sense promise

I can sense hope

As the fog lifts to reveal the true picture

The sun glistens upon the wash of humanity

A child cries out and all heads turn

We are nascent

MISUNDERSTOOD… a song

MISUNDERSTOOD

Cascading in a torrent

A raging river were her tears

How could he walk away from her

After all these years

She gave him all she had to give

Holding nothing back

But, now she’s standing all alone

He’s gone and that’s a fact

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

He didn’t understand her words

They cut him like a knife

He’d given all he had to give

He truly loved his wife

But in the words, she spoke in sleep

She didn’t call his name

A wall went up, as his heart broke

It could never be the same

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

(Refrain)

Don’t walk away… Misunderstood

Press upon your heart and soul

Lean into the good

Wrap your arms around each other

Hold tight and don’t let go…

Be faithful in your happiness

And love – will make you whole

(Repeat refrain)

Believe… a poem

In my failure I dug deeper into solitude and regret.

During this time of bitterness, I found nowhere and no one to turn to.

With my loss it seemed there could only be one way out.

But,

In failure I can find strength.

In bitter times I can find sweet repose.

In loss I can find life.

Believe…

REFLECTION… a poem of faith

Yes, I’ll take your hand, Lord

When you offer it to me.

Of all your plantings in this world

I am but a mustard seed.

—————

But, you see inside of me

Much better than I do.

In this, I place my heart and soul

To do what you will do.

—————-

Understanding, I will take from this

Looking to my other hand.

For this is how I will share your love

Reflection, to my fellow man.

—————-

And though you don’t release me

Forever clasp inside your heart

My travels true

With words of you

Will be my place to start.

“Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move…”
