(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in God’s Up when I (fall)/(fail)”)
Many have come and gone in your lifespan.
You’ve gained, you’ve lost, you have been tossed and turned.
And none was what you expected; no plan
you made, no reason you rhymed. Yes. You. Spurned.
I planned it all. I sought to fill the void,
the chasm, when I fainted and dropped deep,
when I cried out, “God? You up there annoyed?”
When God came down, lifted me up from weep.
“God sustains all who (fall)/(fail), raises all Up.”
Psalm One4Five:4teen – God’s Plans don’t (fall)/(fail).
Even when we (fall) and (fail), God is StartUp.
Begin again, (fall)/(fail) again, Up, Prevail.
We can’t know when God’s Score will be settled.
We can be certain when we (fall)/(fail), nettled.
