EGO BUSTER

Friends who said “that’s great,”

Certainly avoid my fate…

The near-two thousand blog–

There they’ll log–

My poetry must not be all that great!

I’ve never made pretenses,

So why do they put up fences…

Egos stoked

Don’t like being poked,

For that has consequences!

I tried not being shallow,

Giving them the greatest “follow”…

I did what was right

Generous in God’s sight,

Back in obscurity to wallow!

Invitations to friends

Rarely result in good ends…

What’s my disease

That when I say please,

They won’t follow through with intents?

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?.
