Richard’s next poem: Twenty-nine years

2-14-11 — Twenty-nine years

By Richard Zowie

Twenty-nine years

As a Christian

Have taught me

One iron, firm, dense, immutable fact:

I still have much to learn.

Still, I fret not.

When I read and struggle to grasp

Romans, Galatians, Corinthians, Psalms.

I well know

Daily Bible reading

As the years go by

Will make the combination locks’

Numbers and sequences

Easier to see

Easier to grip

Easier to turn

Easier to pull at the right time.

Richard Zowie has been a Christian for–yep, you guessed it–29 years. Post comments here or e-mail him at richardstwoshekels@gmail.com.
