Though you never dreamt of the thoughts

you also were determined to obtain what you sought

The glimmer and glow of satisfaction spread across your face

No shame, all glory and you have never felt the shame or disgrace

The attraction is so strong that you cannot leave it denied

You maneuver throughout the stream, very tired yet you tried

Gaining attention from that one who eyes you must obtain

That one person with whom actions, should not be restrained

Or maybe the person is inanimate

Doesn’t move, doesn’t speak, yet you are still adamant

the glimmer and the glow still show

they approach you in the same manner you already know

You fixate the daily activities and meaning of your days

plotting, thinking, coordinating the methods, the ways

Your thoughts and eventually your prayers move

in the same manner as you have began to

towards the determination of achieving these “possessions”

whether they are of a human capacity or of human expression

So much dedication shown

So much determination expressed and gone

Once either one is obtained, how long will they remain

A moment, a week, a month, a year

and then when it is gone, the absence of it won’t even create a tear

So all the hard work, all the perseverance was lost

On “possessions” that don’t even evoke the same emotion as what it cost


No matter the time or the weather

When we are fulfilled by the prayers

that should be lifted up everyday and not only when we want to care

We are filled more times over than we know to believe

Through our eyes happiness and relief stream

Because while we searched for relief, we had nowhere to lean

Fear and doubt, fatigue and stress, all we felt was pain

Eyes not dry at that moment, we lived within the rain

Only at those moments do we seek to try to obtain

what we have always been told, will always remain

Takes less of the work and definitely less of the strain

And all we have to do is call out HIS name.
