FOOD FOR THOUGHT (#3 IN A SERIES)

CATHARSIS

When my pride hit the fan

Fantasy dropped in the can…

Attitude crashed,

Negativity lashed

My will in such a short span.

Thursday of that week

Emotion was up a creek…

Came crashing down,

No one around

To give comfort as I’d weep.

No therapist would talk,

Must concentrate and WALK…

No one there

Trained to care,

(At least no one mocked).

Didn’t have the Chaplain’s number,

Or a nurse who could help me get under…

Reasons why

I wanted to die,

But God came through with His wonder!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
