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

penned in moon dust

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.
