Topic: Eternity (03/10/11)

TITLE: What is Important?

There seem to be destinations
That monopolizes our days.
We must be here, or maybe there,
It seems we’re running in a maze

We must check the appointment book,
before we ever begin our day.
We’re looking for a tiny spot,
where we might rest, or play.

But seldom do we find that spot,
and maybe, must skip devotions.
We shower and dress, and rush out the door.
(There’s not even time for lotions.)

And so, our days are passing away;
the years rush speedily by.
I wonder if it’s so important,
and will I even find time to die?

But what about eternity?
Have we considered our pace?
The thing that’s most important,
is how we run the race.

Where’s the time to serve our Savior,
in the light of heaven’s view?
We need to prioritize our time;
before this life is through.

We’ll give account of each moment,
that we have fritted away.
I want my heart to be ready,
on that final judgment day.

Our friends are so important,
yet, do I share my Savior?
I for one am very convinced;
I need a change in my behavior.

“Number your days,” is God’s command.
Life will go on, when our life ends.
God saved my soul for a purpose,
and upon this plan, He depends.

I confess, instead of overcoming,
life has overcome me.
Lord, help me to count the cost;
and give more of my time to Thee.

Very well rhymed poem. I especially liked the last stanza.

great poem and i like the title.... the poem "does what it says on the tin!"
Carmen Redding03/18/11
I enjoyed reading this poem. I think you meant to write "destinations that monopolize our days." You wrote "destenations that monopolizes...
Other than that one typo or grammatical error, your piece was very convicting and well written. A good reminder to "give to God what is God's."

This is a wonderful reminder of what is important. Your rhyme and rhythm just flowed almost effortlessly
