poetry flairs the nostrils

As National Poetry Month winds up, I recommit to writing, having finally reached a place, an oasis where inspiration to write prevails; and write I shall.
Here’s a brief poem I wrote earlier last week. Enjoy.

Too Hard
refuse to look at what isn’t
and focus on what is
ignore the trite and cookie cutter
see the forest and the trees
pass up thoughts of failing
concentrate only on success
disavow the nay-sayers
avoid the distractions and pits
right is what is important
all the rest is left to God

The next time trouble rises, ask yourself:
“Is there anything too hard for God?”
If the answer is ‘yes’, then you handle it.
But, if the answer is ‘no’, then let God handle it.
(Read Genesis 18:14; Jeremiah 32:17; 27)
