poetic prose

The Writer

A man at a desk
Pen in hand

He writes

Word by word
Paragraph by paragraph
Chapter by Chapter

I sit nearby

Oh… what is He writing?

Is it exciting?
Heart melting?

I know it’s my story
He told me so.
Should I make suggestions?
I have plenty to share

This is so exciting!
So nerve wracking!
So… terrifying!

What will He have me do?
What will He have me become?

Will I be a hero?
Will I have influence?
Will I get to make a difference?

Will I finally be loved like I’ve always wanted?
Dreamed I’d be
Hoped I’d be

Or will I be disappointed?

What if I’m a nobody?
What if I won’t be who I want?
What if I never get what I’ve craved to have?

What if I’m unloved?
Just like the others have said

Weakly I beg Him,
Please tell me!
Please show me what will happen!
I’m scared.

What if I hate it?
What if I don’t want to?
What if I’m disappointed?

How do I know I can trust You?
How do I know You won’t ever let me down?

His eyes raise as keeps writing.
Kindly, He smiles.

Because I, my love,
Am the King of Kings
The Lord of Lords
The Almighty God.
And I, my child, love you
With an everlasting love.

A love the world doesn’t know
Will never comprehend

It’ll be hard
It’ll be exciting
It’ll be terrifying at times.

But I am here.
I got you.
And I will be with you,
Every step of the way.

“The Lord appeared to me (Israel) from ages past, saying, ‘I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore, with loving kindness I have drawn you and continued My faithfulness to you.'” – Jeremiah 31:3

Everlasting: עוֹלָם – ‛ôlâm : Always, continuance, eternal, beginning of the world and without end; Beyond the field of vision of time or space; a time hidden from the present
