Divinity in Poetry

In the End

I’m trying to make that

Trusting connection.

Looking to cross that bridge’s

Open communication.

My soul patiently waits for

Her anonymous Invitation.

But fear invades my heart. So

I shrink back to familiar territory.

Why risk the possibility

Of utter rejection?

I’m not a ball played by

Women’s sexual gratification.

Who is safe, am I safe from

Avoiding a bleeding heart.

I’m wary of callous hearts that

Leaves one battered and beleaguered.

Life’s point is to always love

And be loved, and then die?

Is there an calculated cost

Or unbearable risks?

Come one, come all, and

Let’s dance till we all fall.

Then What? When death rules,

Then fall short on judgment Day.

Life brings sorrows and joys,

Peace and war, defeat and victories.

Will love triumph, or will humans be

Swallowed up in deaths’ cold waves.

My present plight is to enjoy God,

Shun the evil, and love the good.

Looking for that Heavenly symphony,

To dine and sing with divine company.
