Poem -

The Sands of Time

The Sands of Time

When the sands of time cease to exist
Will we transition into eternity?
Ravaged and ripped apart internally,ย 
I withstand this world's bewildering waysย 
But throughout the craze, I still believe
Despite the heartache and mistakes,
There is a place to rest my weary soul
In amazing grace, I seek the final chapter
Where laughter and love hereafter flow
One can never know the outcome of a race
Yet, God holds out a bejeweled pronged crown
Of participatory democracy
Given to those who endure to the endย 
And lend their devotion's blend in faith
Sensitive to the Creator in His creation
Aware of the sensation in nature
Showing us the way to live with symbiosis
And not partake in the world's psychosisย 
For there is a day and age where history stops
For heaven to interject its honorable stay
Fidelity's final prayer spread upon the land
And the sands of time waft away

Hi Lorris....Thank you!ย  I appreciate your kind support.....We as humans may think we know the world we live in...but we are all just a short blip of time in this physical reality...For those who have sought the mystery all their lives will finally have answers.ย  xoย  ;)ย

Hi Cherie, although I'm atheist, I really enjoyed the flow and rhythm to this piece. It conjures up some interesting ideas and concepts. Sometimes I wonder what it must feel like to have faith...By reading this poem, it sounds pretty awesome.

Take care - Syd xoย

Hi Lisa....Thank you....I cannot wrap my mind around not living life according to time....We do everything by time...eternity does not have those limitations....and I look forward to God's higher ways than man's best attempts....lolย  I appreciate you always taking time to read and comment. xo ;)

Hi Terry.ย  Thank you.ย  I find that as I keep getting older, I am drawn to thinking more of how the time here we spend on earth has purpose and meaning beyond what our limited time here makes us believe is important...I think that is why God tells us in the Bible to focus on things of above in heaven, not things here below.ย  We get so caught up in the limitations of what our flesh allows us to do that we can neglect the spirit of God inside us...and that is such a shame because that is the part of us that is beautiful and with promise.ย  Thank you for your overwhelming kind support of my poetry and my book.ย  Bless you.ย  xoย  Love n Hugs

Hi Silent Dreamer.ย  Thank you.ย  ;)ย  Our time her has purpose and meaning, and yet someday we will not need the concept of time as we have known it on our journey.....the sands of time developing us for an eternity...That is how I think about it....God has a plan.ย  I feel it. ;)ย  xoย ย

My Dear Cherie,

Our time on Earth is fleeting
Life's hourglass soon expires
But, our time in Paradise is eternal
Serving God's righteous most desires

All my love,

Amen, Larry!ย  Not that this life does hot matter, but the way we live by time's limitations will be removed, and our true identity and purpose in full view in our eternal life with God.ย  I think so many people wander around in their life not feeling that purpose, and that is sad...There is much joy and hope in knowing we are here because we are loved and have important meaning in God's plans.ย  Love n Hugs xoย

Hi Butterfly Russell.....I appreciate you taking time to read and comment.ย  We are a part of the sands of time...but it will now always control us...So much to explore and live with expectation....We are loved.ย  If we live with that hope and not focus on things of this world's ways, heaven's ways will reveal itself....God has a plan. Thank you. xo

Thank you, Edward.ย  I think we are so used to our lives being run by the concept of time that we have no idea what eternity holds for us....until the sands of time run out...lolย  Thank you for taking time to read and comment.ย  xo ;)
