LOST: a poem

Lost in such a fast-paced world

Lost being tossed to and fro

No one knows or sees or cares

That life is full of woe.

“Not true” says the stranger on the road

“Not true” no one can cope;

Someone sees and knows and cares

That life is full of woe.

“Speak above the noise” I call

“Speak aloud to me — and all”

“I have” “I am” “I always will”

Declare: Life is full of hope.

I hear, I trust, I follow now

I finally know what’s true

Found at last, I know what’s right

Found amidst the roaring crowd

He sees, He knows, He cares for me

The One who took my woe.

STOP: song lyric

Busy, bustling, hastily progressing —

ambition or lust for power?

Stop and see the man upon the tree.

Raging , roaring, fiercely drawing:

images for sale or free

Pause, look, see the man upon the tree.

Capture me, enrapture me

All to set me free….

Fuming, flaily, risk exclaiming

giving up with dread

Stop, stare, see the man upon the tree.

Capture me, enrapture me

All to set me free….

Starting, waiting, hope proclaiming

rest and stillness led;

Now at last: you have stopped

To see the man upon the tree.

Capture me, enrapture me

All to set me free….
