Dimming Within

The light!
Once bright to glow.
Seems to have begun to dim,
Within souls.
Animated with life given.
Making an awareness,
Identified and separated...
From a vast darkness.
That appears on Earth,
In a Universe too massive.

Here on Earth,
And on a daily basis shown.
Many have begun to lose,
That connecting glow.
Bestowed upon them given,
The experience of life to live.
To perceive themselves to be,
Living independently.
Of that light within them,
Blessed to be given.

Nothing and no one,
On this Earth...
Is developed and born,
Self created.
To believe they can change,
That which...
The Almighty God has done.
To create it made to observe.
With a consciousness,
Done to dare and this... Attempt to declare it.

For whatever the reason,
So many remain stubbornly...
Feeling independent and free,
From reality.
To delude what they choose,
Done to do others.
As if there is for them,
No price to pay.
Or a facing of consequences.
Of the evidence.
Of what God does,
In overwhelming...
And mysterious ways.
To give and take away,
From us all in seconds quickly.
To flip that switch,
On to off.
Without explanation for it.

Leaving many,
To hear heard say...
'Everything I lived for,
To possess to own has gone.'

Things to obtain.
With impressions to make.
And pretensions to imitate,
A having of status.
Without faith to express,
One's gratefulness.
Sometimes will take,
God to intervene.
To have us all remember,
A decision made...
To take what God does,
For granted.
Should never be,
An accepted recommendation.
With it to believe,
That choice to choose...
Is beneficial for anyone.

When no one has ever,
Left this Earth.
With kept possessions.
Acquired to obtain.
Or impressions made.
To keep maintained.

That to delude,
Without reality.
And the truth of life to include.
Has left many,
Shown dimming within.
God does not create fools.
Fools are self anointed!
