..you’re standing on the edge of a cliff, are you worried about falling or thinking about soaring?

Crawl
through the suffocating inside of hell’s furnace

Walk barefoot
over broken boards littered with the poison of old rusted nails

Wrestle
With fire breathing dragons while simultaneously siphoning Satan’s venom
from your soul

Swim
From the bottom of the Atlantic through a school of Great Whites covered in blood to get to the famed shores of hope

Jump
Over lakes of quicksand into bushes of poison ivy with the shackles of incarceration on your ankles and wrist

Swing
From southern branches like ripe apples waiting to be picked for the autumn harvest

From the throngs of slavery only to be stabbed by the slithering scales of Justice

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?.
