I Sacked God - Poem by Gladys Ombati

Unto me, a job is given
Vague was the definition of the job description
For I was qualified, I was to make it clear
And fulfill all duties with no hesitation
Oh, I loved the comfort zone more

The claps, the smiles, they made me-
Oh, how great this honour was,
Till weary days set in; fading strength
For the duties suddenly were wars
I blamed my Boss the most.

How, no job description, best results needed.
With sunset on my face, I demoted myself.
Burdened, revenge was the best appeal.
I could not get any pad on the shelf,
For with effect, I sacked my Boss.

Re-evaluation, I yearned for another job,
Bound by beings, to impact and live a legacy,
He – the very Boss, restored me, gave me courage,
Clarity unfolded, on the job description, no longer a fantasy.
Permanently reinstated is my Boss – GOD.

    Unto us, a purpose is given. Most times we tend to let pride go before us and distract us from God's will. Let's always seek to be humble and guided by Him, who pens our life story and serve humanity with humility and joy. (Report) Reply
