The Dance of Impermanence

Photo by Jackson David on

I have learned to hold all things loosely, so God will not have to pry them out of my hands.

Don’t be too quick
To hurry the trial
Don’t settle for
Hit it and quit it
For in due time
We heal and mend
As we authorize
Our challenge

Tough times are sent
To buff the rough
And easy times
A gentle reminder:
An era will end
A new age will come
When tears shall
Be sent far away

For nothing lasts
Except the eternal
The dance, dear one
As you practice
Your steps
Is to grasp
The moments
And hold them loose

Now cast yourself
Into the unknown
Fearless in trepidation
Noble and dark
They both have
Their place
And temporary
It is at best

Show me, Lord, my life’s end
and the number of my days;
let me know how fleeting my life is.

Psalm 39:4
