NOT SO BIBLICAL
(2/17/16)


sometimes
calamity
befalls us

continually

in various
and sundry
forms

our maladies
seem legion

we feel
as if
we're being
tested

each
fashioning ourselves
as a latter day
Job

but the solution
is usually
less scriptural

what we sense
as plagues
are only
our decisions
speaking back
to us

telling us
where our thinking
was flawed

where our
wills
have been done

pragmatism
not prayer
is our answer

we have
placed ourselves
upon these
precarious paths

our next
action

our next
utterance

can change
our direction

change
our fortune

if
we will only
look up

accept
the truth

flip
to our next
verse
