The Middle: A Poem

No longer young,

I peer at the beginning

with the lens of Perspective.

Pain and suffering,

Joy and laughter

All mingle together.

 

I dream big of future days spent making a difference in the lives of hurting hearts. What are your dreams? #hopesanddreams #fridaythoughts Click To Tweet

I dream big

Of future days

Spent making a difference

In the lives of hurting hearts.

Loving little ones when once-small-children

Arrive on my doorstep.

 

They call this the Messy Middle–

When days are full

and we forget to pause.

But I don’t want to miss

the moments that make

living worthwhile.

A family meal squeezed

in late after practice.

Worship shared after the busy of one week

and the beginning of the next.

A hug as they rush off to school just

before they leave the nest empty.

This is the Middle.

 

Peace and grace,

Tammy

Broken bodies bend before Him

asking for sight to see.

“Jesus, won’t you heal my body?”

“Your sin is forgiven.

Come, follow Me.”

 

Broken bread between His hands

soon pierced by nails-

an offering.

“Take and eat,

consume this flesh.

I give Myself willingly.”

 

Broken body on a tree

Bloodied, bruised-

For you and me.

“I am the Way,

The Truth, the Life.

Raised, returning, conquering King.”

 

 

This poem is based on the FiveMinuteFriday prompt, Broken.
