(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in living free in God’s Kingdom, not ‘kingdum,’ this daily leavened bread.”)
You seek a kingdom down here in the dust.
Down here, there’s nothing that can ease your strife.
It’s a “kingdum” down here near to combust.
It’s God’s Kingdom Up There to come to life.
I seek a kingdom where none know suffer,
a kingdom of a love of a healing.
I’m “dum” if I think down here, there’s buffer
for my shocked insides. “God, be revealing!”
“Seek God’s Kingdom above all else and first,”
says Jesus. “‘kingdum’ down here won’t suffice.”
We bring the King from His Throne through cloudburst.
Can’t you see? Love comes down as Paradise.
It’s known Jesus is how we overcome.
He brings God’s Kingdom; down here, it’s “kingdum.”
