A wise king winnows the wicked;
and drives the threshing wheel over them.
Proverbs 20 : 26
I will always walk
bound by the perpetuity
of two eternities—
one supposed the future
another once called the past
along this here eternal path.
Yet it is now that I see
the way You built for me.
Where my feet
they aim to meet
with an upright stride
as I walk away from yesterday’s pride.
It is true; it is You that I see
in the dawn of this coming light
and beneath Your glorious sight
it is my soul
You fill; for it feels so whole
as I bask within
this heavenly harmony.
So it is in this moment
in which I choose to spend
where I’ll leave it to the nick of time
should I find a hint of heaven
while I walk this endless line.
And never shall I ever
look at yesterday
nor upon tomorrow too,
But in this here with its now
or in the present,
I guess it leans upon
whichever way the moment went.
Yet instead of guess
allow me a promise to profess.
I now know You built this path
the one that spins with progress
like a wheel—I will turn it around
while I cover whatever ground
until it is me that I am certain I have found.
And it is this—that is all I can ask
within the mystery You gave my life
where so soon shall it all come to pass
as I look upon Your coming task.
