Cleaning My Room | Poetry

See I wonder if we actually realize
That our life is just like a musical reprise
It goes on and on, like a repetitive motion
So here’s to that, my narrative devotion

Just last week, I was cleaning my room
Removing everything with my cloth and vacuum
Papers, notes and books everywhere
And a lesson uncovered that I wanna share

University notes, loose sheets all were found
From every subject all over my ground
Physiology, Anatomy, New Testament Greek
Biochemistry, Pathology, my studying peak

Character sheets, my notes from DnD
And all of the characters that were played by me
Rawrkus Thunderstone and Billy Bittybundle
Markelhoff, printed repeats in a bundle

Bible studies and camp books too
Speaking of the Gospel, speaking words of truth
KYCK, Next Gen and MYC
CPC, CYA, a massive knowledge spree

Now see the connection that are between these three
Is that I used to think that they all were key
But their physical state now, says more than my words do
Forgotten on the floor was something I was used to

What was left over, what was covered in dust
Once valued but then my life chose to adjust
Chose to value new and different things
They all changed quick as my life did swing

But let me tell you something that didn’t change much
Timeless, unmoving something that never  budge
The Alpha, Omega and the Bread of Life
Savior and King, He’s my Lord Jesus Christ

See I was reminded, as I cleaned up my stuff
That things in life change, other things interrupt
You value it now but will you value it later
Just take a step back, see the things that are greater

See I was reminded, as I cleaned up my stuff
That things in life change, other things interrupt
You value it now but will you value it later
Just take a step back, see the things that are greater

Rhymes | Gravity, Wind and Drowning

Gravity
Uncontrollably attracted by
Pulls me straight down
All the way to the ground

And you can’t even escape it
Nope, don’t even try
Affects your life daily
But can’t be seen by eye

It’s the force that attracts
Each mass to another
The one that’s more weighty
Is the one that pulls the other

And you might not even like it
You might say that it traps you
But hey you’re gonna need it
Cause without it there’s no O2

Wind
That’s what’s next, that’s what’s up
And it pushes you around
Whether you like it or not

You can feel it as it flows by
Can see it as birds fly
It’ll push you if it wants
Without having to try

If it builds up really hard
And turns into a  hurricane
Better get away fast
Or you’ll regret you came

You’ll see it from a distance
No chance to defy it
Before the storm comes there is…
[Silence]

Drowning
That’s what’s next in the order
It’s the H 2 and O
That’s chemical water

It’ll be all around
And totally surround ya
It’ll be overwhelming
So ya can’t get far

Dictate your every action
And every little movement
Can you hold your breath?
And just dance with it?

Cause whether you like it
Or whether you don’t
It’ll sway you side to side
Back and forth you’ll be thrown


Now I’m not sure if you realised
This was all intentional
I want to say a message
In a way that’s unconventional

Gravity, Wind and Drowning
Were the three
Words that I chose
To speak about me

Gravity is how I feel
As I look above
Uncontrollably attracted
To God’s love

Wind is what happens
As I look at sin
I get pushed around
And life gets real dim

Drowning is the reality
Of God’s grace
It surrounds and consumes me
Never fail to amaze

Hope you saw a little
Of how I see life
Uncontrollably in love
With my God, Jesus Christ
