“SO, NOW WHAT?”

“You like me! You really like me! So, now what?”

(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in being liked, really liked, and loved, by God First”)

You’ve been to Hell and back with no shortcut.

Slayed the dragon, won the lass, heaped the praise.

When it was finished, you asked, “so, now what?”

You thought it finished the need to amaze.

“You like me! You really like me!” said she

when Sally Fields won her Oscar; took two

to convince her. WHAT will it take for me

to be convinced I am really liked? WHO?

“I like you, Timothy, with all-WHAT like,

WHO loves you, too. So, now what?” Love my Dad

God. I’m His son. He tells me, “Time to strike

while the ‘like and love’ iron is hot, ‘lil lad.”

We know “like and love” won’t be from the gut.

Heart of Jesus prevails. Gone “so, now what?”

    I wrote it from a place of once I am liked and loved by everyone, “so, now what?” Sometimes we think we want/need something so bad that when and if we do get it, we can feel a bit of a “letdown,” making us wonder, “I thought this would make me happy. Is this REALLY what I wanted/needed?” ;(
