Lines In The Sand (Sonnet #488)
Your peace, today, it seemed to be shattered
The world crumbled with such striking swiftness
Contrast the way the day began with now
Sorrow shadows your eyes as loss looms large.
We frame our pain with lines, our faith discharge,
Better? Never ever we wail and how
We draw those lines, enshrine current bleakness
When they’re towers of sand that will be smashed.
Focus your eyes upon bigger pictures
Remove limits of trust you drew ‘gainst God
For He was there before this came about
And will be still despite your fears and doubt
You’re not by this buried beneath the sod
Blue hues will add beauty to life’s mixture.
