How Deep the Depths

I wrote this back in May of last year… full post here. I’m going to try to start re-posting some of my writing and poetry here so that I can have it in one place. I’ll admit, it’s also kind of fun to see what has found its way to the cyberpages over the last couple years.

How faint the fool who treads the way
and tarries about; runs blind to the fray.

How heavy the heart, hardened by years
of abuse and betrayal and manmade fears.

How sad the sigh learned by repetition –
disappointment, abandoned by man’s wild volition.

How complete the chasm built with words great;
explanations attempt determine eternal fate.

How stuffed the souls with semantics and speeches
and tolerant voices crowding out holidays at beaches.

How lost the lonely, desperate to find
a rhyme or a reason to be sanctified.

How dead is this end and reason to fight,
with an honest confession – broken and contrite.

How firm the foundation, without shame,
is the cross that bears my Savior’s name.

How perfect the peace in God’s Word alone
that restores and revives a heart once of stone.

How deep the depths of this Love, divine,
to reach through great wicked and make this faint soul alive.

.let LOVE FLY like cRaZY.
