Vanishing Point

Turning courses

Letting you loose and letting you go

in an effort for you to experience the errors of your ways

 Still, you remain hell-bent

Blind to the consequences of your actions

You pursue destruction, not reconciliation

Unshakable in your pursuit

Committed only to yourself

When you should be heeding the call

of the beggars at your gate

Your house is full of riches

but your heart remains poor

Hardened by unending greed

You seek to punish others for your own misdeeds

Destined to live in long lasting exile

 

Day 25. This post was inspired by a chapter in a book I’m reading, “Love Wins”,  by Rob Bell.  I want to express my gratitude to him for giving me the words for this poem today. He’s a dynamic writer about faith, and as I understand it, an even more dynamic speaker. Looking forward to seeing him in May!
