We – A People Poem

kevin kinge

We are gifted life, then born
Innocent, we imitate and learn to belong
We grow and evolve, with desires and emotions
Creating experiences, defining the self

Like beautiful flowers, we unfold
Some early other are late bloomers
We then struggle to exist and forget
Passive, we only see the truth when it’s a bit too late if at all we do

Trapped in a rat race, slaves to capitalism.
Blinded by comforts, harboring greed and doubts
We rush against time, forgetting to live
Obsess on accumulating material wealth, ignoring the inexhaustible within

Like we did when young, we continue to imitate
Creating false identities separating us from ourselves, persona
Ignorant of infinity soul, we struggle to leave a legacy
If only we knew that we are remembered, by the emotions we created

Then I wonder what if we knew?
That all is one, and the key lies within,
The world…

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?.
