The Blessed Beloved (Poem)

Blessed beloved is

A person that commands success

A person that attracts astonishing advantages

A person that breakout effortlessly

A person that always elude negativity

A person that obtains exodus for evil

A person that spurt blessing to himself

A lover of men and God

And one who eschews evil

But a question is asked

How can we attain mercy? As becoming

The Blessed beloved


An individual spotted and observed

As always in company of friends

That plans and execute wickedly

But was found years later

Devoid of success

And I remembered

The words of a widely-read book

“Blessed is the man who walks

Not in the counsel of the wicked. Psalms 1:1a

But a question is asked

How can he attain mercy? As becoming

The Blessed beloved


A person spotted and observed

As denoted for moral decadence

That was a bully and an outlaw

But was found years later

Bereft of all advantages in life

And I remembered

The words of a widely-read book

“Blessed is the man who stands

Not in the ways of sinners. Psalms 1:1b

But a question is asked

How can he attain mercy? As becoming

The Blessed beloved


A certain man spotted and observed

Known for as an evil worker

That disdains everyone on sight

But was found years later

Embraced in chains of negativity

And I remembered

The words of a widely-read book

“Blessed is the man who sits

Not in the seat of scoffers Psalms 1:1c

But a question is asked

How can he attain mercy? As becoming

The Blessed beloved


A youngster spotted and observed

As always known for one fault or the other

That does the unaccepted at all time

But was found years later

Isolated from everyone that should aid him

And I remembered

The words of a widely-read book

“This man was blameless and upright;

He feared God and shunned evil. Job 1:1b

But a question is asked

How can we attain mercy? As becoming

The Blessed beloved


Hum!

To be the blessed and beloved

The seed that attracts men to oneself

And the creator of the universe

Should and must be nurtured to growth

But if once lost, could be recovered

Though, it use might be reduce to it minimum

The act of sincerity, remorsefulness and brokenness

With an action that displays a new leaf

Also, seeking for the unexpected

Only then, can one attain mercy as becoming

The Blessed beloved
