Wandering (Poetry)

I search everywhere,

looking in each direction,

except for the where You told me.

Seeking answers from people and books

instead of the One who knows what I am looking for.

While all the while You wait

arms outstretched

tears in your eyes

as I crucify you once again.

I go about my day,

ignoring what I know You said,

not acknowledging Your existence.

I reduce You to nothing more than a statue or an idol

to those who watch to seek You.

While all the while You wait

arms outstretched

tears in your eyes

as I drive the spear into Your side.

Suddenly, I find myself empty.

Alone,

no one to turn to.

A part of me I find missing

while you standing in front of me, waiting…

I fall on my face and cry out to you,

“Oh I know I could do what you want me to if only you will forgive me one last time.”

Then You tell me that I need not make any promises,

only tell You what it is I feel,

and take your advice and direction,

and step out in faith and follow.

I repent and cry out to You and You forgive me.

While all the while You wait

arms outstretched

tears in your eyes

as I ran to You and hugged You

and took you off the cross and brought you into my heart.

"Take My Heart...All That I Am...Jesus I Adore You."

      Thank you Billy and Sommer! I am trying to get back to writing poetry as well as creative pieces and goal-setting/relationship/inspirational articles.
