#SoCS: Undone

Who am I that I breathe and live upright?

Under constellation of blazing stars

Staring at the morning’s first rays of light

Living in a world filled with mixed bizarre

Who am I to be counted in the fold

One of his sheep that grazes over time

A child from a rib, neither young nor old

Waiting for forgiveness of one’s own grime

Who am I standing here in pondered pause

Faith borne of hope in a fragile abode

While fighting for desire or peaceful cause

A cross passes on blackened bloody road

It is by grace that we exist as one

It is by His death that sins are undone

Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with an inspiring blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.

Just go with the flow.

Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “start with who/whom” Begin your post with either “who” or “whom” and go from there. Have fun!

    A beautiful poem! The sacrifice so great and my fault as well. It is humbling. Thanks for posting this one – it is amazing!

    Your recent poems have moved me spiritually. When I read this well-positioned line: “A cross passes on blackened bloody road,” I felt transported for instant with a spiritual shiver. The cross was like a shadow passing me as I stood in the crowd, humbled then awakened by a glimpse of grace.

      I’m humbled that this sonnet has moved you, JoAnna. I felt very contemplative this past week…moved by both emotion and spirit. Have a wonderful Easter!

  4. Absolutely beautiful! One of my favorite sayings is “I’m comfortably insignificant.”. Knowing that there are forces larger than ourselves is a great comfort. Happy Easter!

      Thank you for the kind comment Susan. If we could all be comfortably insignificant, there would be a lot less ego and a lot more faith and goodness.

    Lovely! “Pondered pause” was my favorite phrase.
