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 doesnโ€™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
