Ready to Live

Of all there is
On earth or above
Such cannot be measured
Than to walk in this beauty

Breathe in its breath
Lifted from the highest mountains
Scooped up
From the depths of the seas

And alas
I am to fear
Not the lion
Nor the claw of the bear

But that which cannot be seen
That, which we know is there.
It’s carried in the wind
And given with a kiss

It is older than time itself
And has had many names

I am crushed by knowledge
My heart aches
To visit your face
How long shall this be?
I am ready to live.


    1. Thank you. I lean towards this being simply an act of nature or perhaps man pushing things too far. Many people want to cite that God is in control. And although I agree with that sentiment, many people do not understand it. God (likely) did not make this plague and send it to us to kill off the weak. These things are the result of what happened in Genesis 3….the upsetting of balance and nature itself.
      God might be in ultimate control of our souls, and the spiritual realm, but will not necessarily protect us from this plague.
      I’m ok with that. It is His great blessing that we could see this coming and get ready for it.


      1. I agree. God is in control but he gave us humans and his angels free will, and the consequences of our choices is the natural order of things. God did not promise that we would never be without illnesses or suffering but that He would always be with us. One of the ugly truths in life is that you can’t get to heaven without dying.
