…unsure. [Revelation 22:20-21]
I look back over the year, 2020…
vision gained? unsure.
a project completed? check.
have I become more kind?
red spirits drift across my eyes.
time continues. bodies age.
wrinkles and greys… opportunity and grace.
is there any key revelation? unsure.
the Mediator says that He’s coming back soon.
I almost hope it would be now,
to take us all home.
there’s an agreement in my spirit.
can I verbalise it? unsure.
He’s still working at redeeming my pain
with a gentle love that just won’t let me go.
my stubborn attempts at survival
dovetailing with truth and revival.
what’s the moral of this story? unsure.
as much as I long for closure,
2020 has left me with more questions than answers,
and so it seems fitting that my search will continue,
looking for brightness that trumps all artificial light.
our lamps are temporary, but God’s light is eternal.
did I get the benediction I seek? unsure,
but it’s certainly funny
that the last 2 verses of the bible
are 20 and 21.

22:20 He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus! 21 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s holy people.
