Atop A Silly Post 8-1-21


Two places at one time; can I
reside in such a place?
It just may be impossible
to live in such a space.

A fence post, can I sit atop
and balance there alone?
A post between two worlds,
on post that's all my own.

On one side of the fence I crave
the things that draw my eyes.
I yearn for boat or brand new car,
I want for grand surprise.

But that side's so deceptive
I become completely blind.
I cannot see the other side,
the side with peace of mind.

Now if, in faith, I travel there
and seek the real life,
away will be the blindness
and long gone too, the strife.

Can I see past the physical
and open up my eyes?
Can my eyes see reality
before my body dies?

Can I live in the spiritual
so I'm not living blind?
Can I live in the spiritual
the way I was designed?

Designed by my Creator,
designed by God above,
designed to live by faith alone,
designed to live in love.

The next time I am found to be
atop a silly post.
I'll only jump with Godly faith
to Him who loves me most.
