    God and Satchel Paige

    Back up
    Get away from me
    Take your hate’n
    Negative attitude
    Straight on out the door
    You can’t touch me
    If you don’t believe me
    Check Isaiah 54

    I ain’t front’n
    Ain’t playing you cheap
    But I’m thinking about things
    While you are asleep
    My mind’s always moving
    I’m looking way past what I can see
    You accept what’s put before you
    That’s the difference between you and me

    Now my life ain’t 100-percent right
    But I beg for forgiveness and understanding
    You see
    I walk in the Father’s light
    And Lord knows
    I can’t stand totally on his word
    I’d be lying to your face
    But I accept him as he uses me
    I am humbled by his grace

    My trust is in him
    Not me or you
    Each day I realize
    My talents are few
    To be used efficiently
    In the time I have remaining
    And like old Satch
    I’ll never look behind
    Something might be gaining

    BE

    BE,

    One of the many things I enjoy about your poetry, is your versatility. I'm watching/reading you ~ learning from you. And happily, I am witnessing the fertility of your soil, whenever you reward yourself and us with your meditations; imparting those germinating seeds of information.

    Digging this dialogue...loving the perspective...

    Flow Poet!
