DO YOU BELIEVE…ME?

DO YOU BELIEVE…ME?

There’s something ’bout getting old

As “performance” fades…

Men who once in talk were bold

Gain less accolades.

Losing that special edge

So typical of men…

No longer jump toward the edge

To trouble yet again.

Oh, they’ll look as they have done

Since adolescence time…

But because the thrill is gone

They’ll likely stay in line.

Wouldn’t wish it on anyone,

The lack of male release…

But for those who accept this,

They find a stable peace.

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?.
