UNDER GLASS

SOME OF US HAVE…BEEN THERE! POINT IS—WHERE ARE WE NOW?

THE MARVELOUS MUMFORD

Ever felt if under glass,

As life rushes past…

Confined to be

Preserved like a tree,

Certainly typecast!

It’s funny how some people claim

Control even of your name…

Bending until

You do their will,

If not, then they maim!

Model trees under glass,

Beauty that can last…

But the living

Exist in giving,

Themselves to the life they’re cast.

Living needs give and take,

If all one direction it breaks…

None totally

Live as free,

But each of us have a stake!

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?.
