Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

The hands clasped

What haven’t you grasped?

Today, if you hear His voice

Do not hardened your hearts

With your cap in hand

Where does your mind stand?

 

Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence

So the Holy Spirit can take up residence

I jump rope with a small rope as adult

And I do the hurdle jump with sandals

It’s like riding a bike without handles

 

It’s time to put my fears behind me

But I am scared of the unknown that goes into infinity

I still have my braces

And I won’t have room for dentures

Because the inner child left behind her adventures

 

As a child the more you try to be an adult

You’ll be one to a fault

Preschoolers play on those swings

And 2nd graders play the tether ball

Take your curiosities close once and for all
