The Poem

The poem

The poet takes his pen

And begins to write

As he writes, he tries to understand

He wants to find the way in the maze of life

 

The poet

A simple man

Stuck in time

Living in a mortal body

Sometimes showing strength

But having weaknesses

 

But God

Supreme

Creator of heaven and earth

Determines the seasons

Is not stuck in time

The great I AM

I AM in the past

I AM in the present

I AM in the future

He sees the maze of life that the poet is looking at

He is the way in the maze of life

 

The poet

Acknowledges the difficulty

In writing the poem

About the way through the maze of life

While stuck in time

He realizes he needs a birds-eye view

To figure out the way in this maze

Then, he sees the cross

And runs towards it

Standing there is the King

 

Yet God

To whom nothing is Impossible

Created the poet

Knows the poet

Knows everything

He is the way, the truth and the life

This incredible God

Holds everything together in His hands

He holds everything in His hands, including the poet

 

The poet

Sees the Christ the King

The way, the truth and the life

He immediately picks up his pen

And writes the poem

About the way through the maze of life

The first line of the poem reads

“Jesus the Christ”
