Missing the tree for the forest

Jesus Is Coming Soon

Allot of clatter

The Bible is filled with information about the second coming of Christ and there is much chatter these days speculating the when, why and how. Allot of this clatter is often argumentative and even mean spirited. Many people seem to be more interested in the “event” of Christ’s return than Christ Himself.
The following poem is my attempt to give a simple perspective of what is important about the return of Christ.

Missing the tree for the forest

I ponder about
So many thoughts

Some more, some less
It is there He says,

But I couldn’t see it
He says again,

It is there,
It is really there
Don't Miss the Tree for the ForestI keep looking, looking
He says listen

I say I can’t hear
Louder please, louder

There is clatter everywhere
Everyone talking

Everyone saying this is it
Or this is that
Still others’ say wrong,
Wrong and wrong again

Bla, bla, bla and more bla
What does it mean?
Why is everyone so mean?

He says, I am the song
Listen, look and learn

But the clatter continues
Everyone argues

My way, the right way
Be sure you don’t burn

He says keep watch,
I am still the way
I can come most any day

Only when,
I cannot say

Don’t give worry of how,
What or why;
Just know this,
For you, my tears cry

Be not confused by matters small
Just be assured I will come for all

Yes, it’s me who died upon that tree
So as you look,
Through the forest so tall

Do not miss,
The return of me
