Jonathan Caswell“Pickles and Tarts” — Chapter 6

Out of the shell!

the tortoise said

out of that hell!the price was paid.

Now I am cold

but not in vain

as I am told

I won the pain!

I can walk free

did nothing wrong

there is no tree

but I stay strong.

I’m a bit old

and just need love

I’ll be a bit bold

and play the dove

.I found a girl

on a dating site

oh, how I swirl

to her I write.

She’s just too young

or I’m too old

but I’ve begun

and now I’m sold.

My name is Frank

and she’s Nicole

I’m not a prank

yet she’s my goal.

Told her the truth

what will she do?

she’s in her youth

and I feel blue.

Difference in age

is not so good

it is a cage

you think I should?

(Poem inspired by poet Newton Ranaweera’s post:

See, we’re free!!: https://newtoneapblog.wordpress.com/2019/02/17/see-were-free/,

and by chapter 6 of Mario Savioni’s novel “Pickles and Tarts”:

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?.
