Perhaps, within simple godly thoughts
Lost to callous hearts, lacking empathy
Shall be resurrected by casting lots
To see whose behaviors are exemplary
Shall it be royalty with showy stance?
Or a priest of fancy gilded attire?
Consider a knight with his trusted lance
Or a dragon slayer with eyes of fire
Surely, it's not the shepherd boy with sheep!
He smells of pasture lands and earthy filth!
What quality does he bequeath to keep?
Ah! There in the past, the truth is spilth
For once a lowly shepherd became king
After God's own heart, he changed everything
*This sonnet is inspired by the story of King David,
in the Bible....How God chose a simple shepherd to
be the bloodline of Christ, and a great king to change
the world forever! God chose the meek over perceived
powerful positions/status to do His will. ;)
