THIS WORLD

THIS WORLD

Ever tilting

Ever turning

Always aging

As I am yearning

 

For that place 

Beyond the sun

Where God's peace reigns

Where God is one

 

I look around
I see God's Hand
Awesome creation
In this land

 

I wonder how

Heaven will be

Jesus prepared 

A place for me

 

The birds cry out

They do not know

From whense they came 

Or where they'll go

 

But I have peace

I’m not undone

I trust my Lord

Til kingdom come

 

I stand on God's Word

And rest assured

That one day I will see

The place Jesus has prepared for me

 

But for now

I live for Him

While life goes on

Nothing left to whim

 

This world is:

Ever tilting

Ever turning

Always aging

As I am yearning

wonderfully written. powerful. i love the repetition and the sound value of this spectacular poem. thanks for sharing. minor suggestion- the all caps tend to detract from the words/stanzas that require emphasis. overall this is put together very well and i love the meaning- profound.
