Setting Aside Reason For A Time To Fall

Setting Aside Reason For A Time To Fall

A Poem by Keith Allen Covell

Don't take this life for granted. Learn from your mistakes. Teach others to be kind and true to themselves and others.

I can feel it
The pull of the energetic mystery
The calling forth of the intricate complexities
I am the sea, the stone, the breeze

I am you and you are me
In God, all of us resides
And He sees us equally
Why should you see it any differently?

Of course I don't agree with sin
I live in it but without the shame to keep down in it
Isn't it enough to be swimming in it?
Catch my breathe each time for just a little bit

Torn at each ligament
I swell to meet my wants and forget again
The one, most important part
To stay humble

I got to keep selfless, genuine
I got to keep pouring my heart out to those that need it then
Even to those that bleed my spirit
Crush and trampling

Trampoline, bouncing
Through the air and back to earth
Not literally
So no soft landing

Not at all!

Remember your hurt when you get back to me
The rock is hard at your ankle and unforgiving
And it is because you don't forgive yourself
After the fall

You failed to see your fault before the catalyst
The great temptation that firstly put you in this predicament
Even as you had already known
But that's another story all it's own

I have suffered myself the same repetition
Like the seasons change and freewill intention
Choice to change with season or without
Or against

Choices that learn us
Mistakes that churn us
Follow a heart and a mind given to us by the Divine
All life given to us by

All of everything submitted at our feet, so fine
We pick up and use and sometimes abuse
Take advantage and peruse
Setting aside reason for a time to fall

But to get back up again and persevere is God's face
The Glory shining through the chase
The crash being the example of defeat, as a product of freewill
The recovery of one's spiritual prowess

The extension of wisdom and understanding
Products of that same freewill
The beauty in the havoc of the storm
The greatness of the Lord as He gives me choice and chance to persevere, push through any obstacle

Joy results in knowing that I have overcome
My Living Creator wants me to experience this Home
I am filled with revelation that I am part of something great
It is breathing all around me

I am deeply thankful
