Two Poems by JD DeHart: "Promise" and "Rock"

February 23, 2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

Promise

 

I can’t promise you

that where you go will

be easy

 

that there will be a comfortable

chair, kind people, or a system

that works

 

what I can promise, because

it has already been promised, the promise

not being mine but the Father’s

 

is that where you go the Kingdom

of God will be – this is the strange mystery

of the indwelling

 

that heaven is in the everyday present,

and we are all invited to be a part.



 

 

 

Rock

 

Scripture says,” Lead

me to the rock that is higher

than I am.”

Be it so.

 

Do not allow my

own tethers and the prison

of my own design to capture

me.

 

I am no creature to be netted,

preferring the role of the eagle.

Rising above.
