After This

After This”

As sea­sons come, so they must go,
We face the sun­shine, strifes, and storms,
We are enjoined with­in that flow.
But one thing I know that is for sure,
God will always have an after this, for you.

Job lay­offs may come, but a bet­ter job will come,
Rela­tion­ships may break, but a bet­ter will come along,
Sick­ness may make you weak, but you’ll come out stronger,
Pain may break your heart, but some­one you deserve will come.

Aren’t you glad that there’s Some­one who sits on the throne, and it’s not you?
Some­one who is glo­ri­ous, majes­tic, full of grace and truth
Com­fort­ing you with these words:
“My son/daughter, I am the Lord your God, will always have an after this, for you.”

The Great Sin

The-Great-Sin

There is one vice in this world that no man in this world is free.

The more a man has it,
The more he dis­likes it in oth­ers.

If you want to find out how much you have of it,
The eas­i­est way is to ask thy­self;

How much do I dis­like when peo­ple think low of me?
How much plea­sure did I get from being rich­er, clever, and good-look­ing than the next per­son?

A kind of can­cer that nei­ther eats up the flesh,
But eats up love, con­tent­ment, and even one’s com­mon sense.

It takes no plea­sure out of hav­ing some­thing,
It takes plea­sure think­ing thy neigh­bor is not bet­ter than ye.
