Message In Stanza

Poetry and Musings

 

You feel like a diamond in the rough

But you only say that when things get tough

You really have no mojo

You love when you yo-yo

 

The devil is the details

A nasty truth

One big wave to ride

But one big fall

You feel like one who always fails

 

God doesn’t give too much to handle

Then why is my backpack going to break?

As I am walking down this lonely dark path

It sounds like a recipe for disaster

Like faith is one big scandal

 

Then I remember for God so loved the world

He made other statements that were bold

He said joy is in the presence of the Lord

And everlasting life is my award

 

I want to believe

Something this lofty

Is hard to fanthom

And digest

Lord, how do I receive?

 

You created me for more

But I walk out the front door

Let me receive your gifts

And ignore any unwanted myths
