Here is a sonnet I wrote. Hope you like it.
It is strange to trust a unseen Being
or to even trust at all. At times the thought
of sobbing, of dying, or of fleeing
seems far easier than remaining caught
between two opposing sides and picking
-when asked to do so- with a Christlike mind.
Trust? Trust that He always remains sticking
nearby and faithfully helping you find
the right decision to make in a time
when crawling into a hole and hiding
seems appropriate? Not so easy at times.
I wish it were simple to do so. Sliding
into sadness and trying to breath. Can't.
What to do? Need to be saved from this. How?
Write a letter? Talk it out? No. I shan't.
Trust! 'Tis the key. Christ knows my plans right now.
With this in mind, and a worship song too,
all will be fine in a day or a few.
When next doubt comes to mind, I'll know what to do-
No more distrust for me today
I'll read the passage Jeremiah 29:11
and turn my exhausted eyes towards Heaven.
