(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in safer times in but NOT “of” this world that wants me as a ‘worrier warrior.'”)
You lie awake, awake to a lie, “Safe?”
Do you love yourself well to even care?
Unsafe is who you are when self-hate chafe.
Safe is who you are when God is Lord’s Prayer.
“Am I safe?” My guess is, “Not when I’m fear.”
Unsure is lying on my couch. Go home!
Unsafe is all the rage of my career
as “worrier warrior” when I roam.
“Fear NOTHING! Why would I leave you right now?”
asks Jesus. “Now is how you surrender.”
That’s right. Fear NOTHING! Just pray and allow
God to “safe us” when we’re needing splendor.
In this world, NOT “of,” we are unsafe waif.
Of God’s Kingdom, NOT “in” yet, we are safe.
