An Outsider?

Have you ever felt like an outsider? Have you ever felt like your life was an intrusion on everyone else? Like your right to exist infringed on their right to breathe?

Well, you’re not alone; this is how I’ve felt most of my life, whether with friends, in college or at work. I will tell you this, my brothers and sisters, do not worry about anything in life. As the lilies are clothed by God’s hands, and the birds of the air are fed my His grace so He will be with you. God, our Father, knew you before you were in the womb. He had a purpose for you from the moment time began.

Do not worry about what others will say about you, or what they do to harm you. At the end of the day and life you will stand before Christ Jesus, who is our God and Redeemer. Only to Him will you give account of your life. Only our actions, words, and thoughts will be laid before His feet. All others will give accounts to Him for their own deeds, words, and thoughts.

Unfinished Words

How can a man truly know others
if he doesn’t truly know himself?

How can a person understand the world
if his mind is clouded with fear and doubt?

How can a human live a life worthy of breath
if he knows not the future that is to come?


One Man

How can one man know his destiny?
How can one creature know the truth?
How can one life be so important to God
Yet feel so empty of purpose?

How can one Man make a difference?
How can one Being know our needs?
How can one Life be sacrificed to God
For all with a single purpose?


Why?

Why?
Who are we?
When is it enough?
What does this all mean?
How are we to understand You?
Where do we find the true purpose of life?
How do You reveal Yourself to us?
What does Your love mean?
When is it sufficient?
Who are You?
Why?

[This is my first pattern poem. I hope to do more in the future.]

[This poem is directed to God the Father and Christ the Son. Thus, to answer the “Who” questions: line 2 – We are God’s creations, created in His image (Genesis 1:27); line 10 – You are Christ Jesus, the Son of God, the Messiah, our Redeemer and Saviour (John 1:1-5; 3:16-17).]
