You Keep Me Running… #poetry


I run toward the sun

press hope to my soul

will feet forward

rough and dusty road

 

Look over my back

pursuit darkness’ aim

a claim upon my life

forward, aghast they gain

 

I run toward the son

press hope to my soul

will feet forward

rough and dusty road

*

life is in the balance

in my shoe  a stone

press on a little longer

closer now, I’m home

 

 

 

David a shepherd, a psalmist, a king understood the running from and running toward “something.”

David was always running toward God in faith and running from enemies, his own king, his son, his guilt…

What are you running from? what are you running toward?

Are you longing for a peaceful green pasture to lay down on today?

Are  the talons of fear and darkness digging into all hope, all resolve?

Call out  to Jesus you who are weak, afraid, burdened.

 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”

Mathew 11:28

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
