(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in me at decrease, Jesus at Increase, with no ‘should’ about that One”)
You’d be at peace were it not for the “should.”
“Should have conquered these bleed demons by now!”
Your will power has failed you from boyhood
to manhood, from the cradle to the “ciao.”
I “should” have prepared for the thrust splinter.
First, too easy. Then, too hard. Lastly, chance
for healing. Hope Springs Eternal. Winter
is Fall. His Rise is Summer. Snow “should” dance.
The ONLY “should” is love one another,
“as I have loved you.” Jesus could have “should”
to love us, but He didn’t. As mother,
father, sister, brother, He is “Do Good.”
E.T left Elliott with words, “Be good.”
Jesus loved and left us, now finds us. No “should.”
