Yesterday was a day with several titles. April 1st is of course”April Fools Day” but it was also to some Easter and to others Resurrection Day, and to still others just “plain ole Sunday”. It was in the waking moments of my day yesterday that I had this idea to put out some of my random yet very intentional poetry – a.k.a “Cryptic Lyrical Messages” I decided to start with this one entitled “Precipice of Life”. It was intended to be the bridge to restoration of a fractured friendship – it served its purpose for a season…and then a break beyond repair and well, the rest is history as they say. Without further ado, here is my foray back into the “blogosphere”.
As I stand on the precipice of life
Over the Edge I peer
There you stand beckoning –
My choices are: Run, jump or hide…
Narrow the road behind – the path I have come so far along
The choice is now mine – with you I want to be…
The road behind, I know so well
To run, would be to hide…
So I jump
There, I find you – with hammer in hand
There are no more rules – they have all been broken and defied
The spirit of life has been found and regained
The journey has begun – limits are gone
A headlong dive over the precipice of life…
As I read this now, years beyond the events which led up to the writing of this, I realize this could look a lot like the initial steps one who is choosing to leave their old life of sin behind and follow the One true path of Christianity – the one which leads to eternal life, a life with Christ.
No matter how you read it, nor your circumstances in life, everything breaks down to a choices – some lead to life, others not so much. If you have not chosen the path that leads to Christ and to life, I would like to encourage you to “jump”. If you have, hallelujah!
Alas, onward and upward – stay tuned because tomorrow’s selection will be something you won’t want to miss, or maybe you will – but why not “jump” with me?
