The Carrying Of Crosses By Trust And Faith... - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)
I have seen years pass too fast thru' the eyes of many-
Crosses shouldered 'til the wood shards splintered deep
that made each Cross the more difficult to bear in faith.
Yet, these bearers soldier on with quiet conviction;
makes we wonder if they know when it's time to say 'when'.
And suddenly it struck me, and it made me feel ashamed
that I had such little faith in these souls I pitied,
as I realized that in their world, there wasn't any 'when'.
You see, each one of them possessed cardinal Trust and Faith-
that their Crosses would be lifted, without their asking,
that their Crosses would be lifted when they could no longer
bear them...for they had unwavered Faith and Trust in 'One'-
who they couldn't touch or see but knew He could and does,
by never handing us- a Cross our shoulders could not bear,
there to catch us if our best should fall shy of the Hill.
Crosses, we must carry with our all...because He did for us.
