What do you want of me?

What do you want of me?

A Poem by SpokenWord

What if it was possible to get
your life long dream
if as magic it came into being
would you believe it to be
or would you question it eternally?

How is it possible for the Sun and Moon
to line up so perfectly
like a total eclipse of the heart
harmony on a molecular level
a living fantasy made into flesh
from the clay of one's mind
formed over a life time
twisted from the third eye
rinsed over the finger tips of Gabriel
into a tropical storm that drowns me
under a sea of God's agape love

I hold my breath for as long as I can
in fear that if I don't
I will swallow more than I can handle
I can feel his blessings descending
like rain droplets that quench my thirst
his forgiveness all around me
swirls me in circles like wind
whipping around mountains
his gifts he constantly gives
boundless he has been with me
and I receive them
with the heart of Thomas
doubting their sincerity

Why can't I believe?

I think as I exhale
taking in an ocean of emotions
my spirit wants to leave my body
as I look up to him for understanding
and ask my burning questions

What is it that you want of me
Why are you being so loving toward me
when we both know....

That I don't deserve it!

This is so true........ The planets are too perfectly aligned for it to be all a coincidence. Hence...I'm not a supporter of the big bang theory. We don't deserve God's gracious gifts. But thank God he loves us enough to sacrifice the love of his life so that we may know him. Beautifully penned, and I'm hopeing it touches some unbelievers.

Its true not a lot of people can understand the love he has for us but sometimes you just have to believe no matter what. I know I do but there are days that I question it myself at some point or another everyone does

Gabriel to me is known as the Archangel of Communication; and you are definitely honing that essence through this piece and message. The idea of belief that we are undeserving somehow fuels the tension, desire, hunger and gratitude when received. This stanza touch my very core...what a beautiful choice of words...

If this was me writing this exquisive poem then my main point would be "Why can't I believe"

Even thou no answer will ever cushion the question or even change the outcome.....I would think that I myself don't have good gracious like that in my life....on the other hand...I believe everyone has a hard time processing when good things one after another comes along to where you start to question or doubt it will last...."not me, this never happens" or "Oh this will end, just you wait & see" I could actually go on!

I always feel good things come to an end at one point but then that's a bitter side of me which does not define me! However on the flip side I am breathing....I see what good I have in my life & always think "It could be worse" "HE" is good to me that way....thus being a continual thing in my life!

I guess the only thing as humans is....we can cherish what comes our way & overcome any obstacles when that "dream, gifts or magic" stops....slows down...cease to exsist....ect.....I only can believe in what I have, even if it's for now!

Troy as usual always a brilliant write....you really allow our minds to do some soul searching!

You had me at the title...this is very powerful and so thought provoking. This reaches down deep and is so utterly beautiful..

He wants nothing of you..and we have been conditioned to believe that we don't deserve his love ..when you do..you really do..He is Love ..remember what that word means...
