(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in ‘it is finished’ where my ego is concerned”)
Are you finished? Did you excel as planned?
Or are you just starting? Jerusalem?
You had a good run even if homeland.
Now you’re Heaven to Home to overcome.
It was finished when I said, “No more ‘self!'”
When I made it about Jesus, not me.
He finished what I could not bring myself
to admit: Without God, I’m NOTHING! “See!
At last! Jesus uttered, ‘It is finished.’
He bowed His head and then gave up His ghost.”
“Gave up” as in, “He Loved undiminished.”
If we “gave up,” we could Love without boast.
Here on earth, we will remain unfinished.
Homeward Heaven, we “Look! It is finished!”
