Love Can Last (poem by me)

A marriage
is an old covered bridge
two people embark on together

taking shelter with promises of forever
but darkness ensues and threatens their endeavor
will creaky planks give way and collapse?

in time the darkness will pass
love can last.

There are three things that are too amazing for me, four that I do not understand: the way of an eagle in the sky, the way of a snake on a rock, the way of a ship on the high seas, and the way of a man with a maiden.—Proverbs 30:18-19

Trouble (poem by me)

My problem is chilling,
Big as the Chrysler building,
It’s not just anxiety,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

It hangs in focus,
Everyone must notice,
They joke politely,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

My stomach feels queasy,
My thoughts are uneasy,
Rescue is unlikely,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

A stone falls from the sky,
I begin to wonder why,
A slingshot is handed to me,
He reminds me He is Almighty.

So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him. —1Samuel 17:50
