Here I Stand

I came across this little poem the other day. I wrote it back when I was in Bible college. Don’t worry, I don’t plan on quitting my day job.

“Here I Stand”

Here I stand at the edge of existence
Looking back at the scape of my mind,
The snow capped mountains robed in wonder,
The dark, dank demons of valleys unwind.

Here I stand at the edge of existence
Quickly counting the acts of today,
The swollen schedule engulfing my head,
The screams of past, begging me, “Stay!”

Here I stand at the edge of existence
Peeking through the absence of time,
The fog laced pathways, shrouded in darkness,
The back-lit shadow of future sublime.

There I’ll stand in the gulf of eternity
Life’s time past and Forever before,
Presence Divine enthroned about me,
Ne’er shall I thirst or want for more.
