Why do we run and hide

When purpose or direction are tried….

Not all of us do

But alas, how few,

Stand up with resourceful pride!

Why do some in some measure,

When threatened resort to pleasure….

To take up their minds

With something that blinds

Them to opportunity’s treasure?

For myself, I’m apt,

To not always adapt…

But think of my Mom

Whom I depended on,

To defend me when I became trapped.

Supposedly older and wiser,

I sometimes would still utilise her….

A suitable stand-in

Would my heart win,

But not as a chastiser!

I have enough, with my wife,

Gumption without knights white…

To figure out how

To settle a row,

Without pretending I can’t quite.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
