Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

You got a deep cut
The doc said
Just put a band aid on it
And go on your way

You had a stressful week
The yogi said
Take one deep breath
And move forward

You need to lose weight
The nutritionist said
Eat once a day
And walk ahead

Our speed is excessive
It’s for advancement
But are we moving forward?
Or just moving in man’s ways?

You can have peace
God said
He will restore your soul
And rest in green pastures

You can have joy
God said
By the Holy Spirit
And His word will always stand

You can have patience
So many things distract
From the very source of life
Abba, our Provider

  1. It’s a nice one. Too much speed. We need to slow down and have time and harmony with our creator.

  2. Lovely poem! ❤ I especially love "He will restore your soul // And rest in green pastures" which I assume is based on the 23rd Psalm? 🙂
