Who are you?
Who am I?
Just another being
That was born and will die.
One of billions
On this earth,
One more person,
One more birth.

Each a story,
Each a rhyme
From the cradle to the grave,
Written with the pen of time.
Each soul a volume
Side by side
On a bookshelf
Centuries wide.

Some gilded,
Mostly poor
All existing, struggling,
Desiring, seeking more.
King or pauper
Each his day,
Proud and selfish,
Wanting sway.

Kingdoms rise,
Pilgrims tour,
Tyrants conquer nations,
Explorers seek a foreign shore.
History scribed as
Ages dawn,
Battles wagered,
Time spins on.

What’s the reason?
What’s the plan?
Has it always been this way?
Philosophers ask, “What is man?”
Was there a beginning?
Is there an end?
Uncertain
Theories blend

In His image
Man chose sin
“He has chosen us in Him”
A holy purpose, new life giv’n.
“Whosoever believes”
A plan unique-
Beloved Son
Souls to seek

Creator,
Great I Am,
Almighty, Ominiscient,
Sacrificial Passover Lamb,
King of Kings, Prince of Peace,
Redeemer, Friend,
Alpha, Omega,
Beginning, End

God our beginning and our end, bookend that holds us all up—every volume, every book of us. So many books of life, and none of them insignificant to God. Loved the vision this poem prompted in my mind.

I like your poem pattern, but even more than that--the way you blended the words and the wonderful meaning.

Eternal questions that have no time expiry date on them.
Well written and concise.
