Waiting’s Rewards

Why did I never understand?
Why did I have to wait so long?
Who had such a hold of my dreams
Never letting them go?

Shall I blame myself
For being so blind?
Who in this universe
Brings light that we may see

Worms feel the dust as they go
Even they with no eyes
Sense light and darkness
Nourishing the soil
No one blames them for their toil
But we have eyes
Still blind

A laser beam of hope
A flicker to follow
All around what I see
Is fermenting stench
Breaking me

A glimmer within
Shows me my sin
I never knew
Knowledge is power
Holy Spirit power
Unleashed by true light

Now I see even me
I am the same as you
That flicker I follow
Now a beacon
Now I see hope in my sorrow
Grabbing hope’s light
I am new
I see Him also in me
Keep turning toward light
Till every shadow is gone

About Mary (tqhousecat)

I am a wife and a mother of two grown children. I love Jesus and sharing my faith through written words. I currently have a poetry blog and also write on medium.com. My main focus is hope in Christ. I only wish that whoever reads this will be blessed, inspired and occasionally amused.
