Rhythms, A Poem of Life – “I want the freedom to live my life; yet freedom isn’t free. But there is power in living fully in the way God meant for me.” —FRW
”’For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’” —Jeremiah 29:11
Rhythms, A Poem of Life
(a poem inspired by Ecclesiastes 1:1-18…struggles and hope)
Verily, verily – I tell you the truth,
Times like these haunt my days,
up ‘til now, way back to my youth.
In my mind resides turmoil, frustration, and strife…
Born from the hand that’s been dealt in my life.
No. It hasn’t always been pretty.
I’m not gonna lie.
But I swear I’ll keep fighting, ‘til the day I die.
What is the meaning, desperate for answers I search…
High and low, in the streets, in my heart…knocking on the doors of the church.
Gotta find some peace, for my soul to be still…
Is there nothing on earth, my longing will fulfill?
Maybe that’s the problem, when this world pains me so…
Need to peer through the darkness,
see clearly in the light…then I will know.
My life is a book…the best part still to be written…
No matter what lies ahead…I’m never quittin’.
The wounds of my life have wrought scars of steel…
God is commander of this battle,
and to me the victory he’ll reveal.

Rythms, A Poem of Life – A tribute is given to those whose actions they deserve, to those who’ve gone humbly forward with a dignity; that at times was hard to preserve. For those who’ve triumphed over hurdles that were unwarranted and unfair. For those who keep fighting for what’s right, no matter the color of their skin; no matter the texture of their hair. Even though the plight goes on…it seems never ending for some. I applaud those whose struggles have made a difference for generations to come. So here is a special tribute from me…an homage this week, to our nation’s Black History.
Peace and love,
