Steps to Forever: A Poem
If I could turn you inside out,
And erase all of your fear and doubt,
I know beauty would shine forth like exquisite flowers,
Petals spread like wings while skies pour nourishing showers,
Angelic features outline your soul when masks hit the broken earth,
God envelopes your heart in a golden embrace, giving way to new birth,
The power of the human touch can transfer emotions hidden deep within,
But it’s impossible for finite love to cover rebellious spirits and filthy, selfish sin,
Who created you with brilliant accuracy? Every cell was uniquely crafted by His hand,
A purpose set inside your heart, a story of romance and adventure were all a part of His plan,
Desires multiply, giving birth to dreams too lofty to reach, with only human’s lowly will and strength,
God sent His Son to this cruel world, perverted from His original plan, from Heaven to Earth, He traveled a great length,
Agape love came in the form of human flesh, Jesus lived to show a righteous life, then died to save us from sin’s payment due,
Displaying God’s glorious power, He breathed life again, showing all humanity that He is truly the only way to be birthed anew,
Departing to return to heaven’s heights, but leaving behind a command, to spread His message of grace to every nation, tongue, and land,
Soon after, his disciples were happy to greet and be filled with the Holy Spirit, starting a hope revolution, truth battling against time like sand,
God sits on His throne, ruling with wisdom and mercy, and Jesus, on His right side, on the edge of his chair, just waiting for the Father’s indicating word,
“It’s time to take them home,” He’ll say. Then the mighty warrior will bridle his white horse, signaling the beginning of eternity, after every nation’s heard,
So, your visage is merely a weary cage to travel winding roads of temporary wars, though someday your body will be turned inside out, your perfect soul will shine,
Forever is grasped in moments of joy and peace, a hint of what’s to come, but nothing can compare to forever with the Creator and Sustainer, a pleasure surely divine.
