Topic: Huh? (01/21/10)

TITLE: Lord, Did You Whisper?

Lord, did you whisper?
I’m not sure what I heard;
You want me to give all I own--
How absurd!

Lord, do you know that
I’m richer than most?
Don’t you care I’ll lose what I love--
How morose!

Lord, did you hear them?
The crowds praise my name;
If I become poor they’ll declare
What a shame!

Lord, please speak louder,
Did you really say “share”
And I can’t store my treasure—why?
How unfair!

Lord, did I hear wrong,
My gold’s not enough?
I need to surrender my will--
This is tough!

Lord, can you tell me,
Are my ears working right?
I’ll be blessed if I give—but please,
Not tonight!

Lord, you must know that
I love my life here;
But life-love means losing, you say--
How severe!

Lord, do you promise
I won’t be alone
Through the eye of the needle and
The unknown?

Lord, I believe you;
You’ve opened my eyes;
Your truth is treasure—how unlike
The world’s lies.

I might have added an: "It is done as You ask Lord" verse and then a "Now let's talk about you other problems line."
Still I liked this one. It's easy to see through the eyes of this person. Problem is, when the Lord speaks to "me" He wispers.

Beautifully written, not so easily done!

I really love this poem. We've all been here, I believe, wanting to hang on when the Lord says "Let go". Oh, the struggles we endure! Nice job!

Not only do I like the message in this poem, the meter and rhyme are remarkable.

thought provoking, and a well-written poem. I like how well it rhymed.

I can understand why this ranks so highly among all the entries - beautifully written with an equally beautiful message.
