What is Real?


reality
becomes real
when it happens to us
once it becomes real
that's the time we understand

that nothing is certain
in our lives
what is certain
is death
and life

and what is certain
is that God can take our lives
anytime He wants
and the question
starts
what have we done
with our lives

when reality
becomes real
we begin to be awaken
rudely
from a deep slumber
a lukewarmness
that has crippled
our hearts and spirit
unknowingly

when we feel the pain
physically
emotionally
or mentally
we discover
what ordeal our Lord
went through
for our sake
and the question
starts
are we worth it Lord?

and the answer
is always real
for his love
was never a dream

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
