POEM 359: GOD’S MY DAD

while the world speeds by 

sunlight looks upon me as I struggle along 

and say “you have nothing left”,
because this hurt doesn’t feel right
but sunlight, you’re so wrong,
in my heart, I am rejoicing,
how I wish your burning eyes could see
the gleaned grin that saturates my heart
and how joyfully, I thank God when things go wrong,
because he’ll make it right
though this valley of bones
echo the eerie plea of weary souls,
there’s a table prepared for me on the mountain top,
I wouldn’t settle for crumbs
while the world speeds by 
sunlight looks upon me as I struggle along,
all that matters though the world may not see
is that God’s my dad and he’s got my back
