Self Portrait – A Poem

What I think I know,

I don’t have knowledge of all the pieces to fully understand.

And, even if all the pieces were available to me,

I could not grasp the full scope of my understanding anyway.

What I do know,

Albeit, only partially –

Is that I don’t really know anything fully.

A delightful paradox to explore as the pages of life turn.

Thus, I carry on.

The future – A poem

The future… a flower too delightful to pluck,

As it blossoms

In hope filled fields of thought,

Swaying to destiny’s winds.

Amid the branch of all life

Its fragrance,


Our heart’s only companion,

Enchants our expectations.

No bag needed – A Poem

Immunity –

Nature’s staunch safety


You take it with you,

Everywhere –

No bag needed.

Long before you came into view,

It guarded your beginning,

So that you come into this earth:



And, able

To fulfill your course,

As a beautiful spark,

Shining in the universe.

‘Though you have suffered,

You are not destroyed.

You are immune,

Because The Creator protects,

That delicate chard of eternity

— that is uniquely you.

Private Reflection for Good Friday – Value

“The cross unerringly exposes this stunningly marvelous and abruptly exquisite declaration

that God will not let this single life of mine…

pass into oblivion without

unflinchingly declaring that my life carries a value

worth the expenditure of His.”

― Craig D. Lounsbrough
