Hold fast🌈 (a poem)

Hold fast
All will soon be past
Your God; do not cast

Remain ready
Alert not gloomy
Awake not “sleepy”

Keep watching
Continue matching
The sky will soon start catching

Never forget him
The lord who begat you
His grace is sufficient for you

Let all eyes be open
Lest it be closed and all is over
And you begin to ponder

Let all tongues be bridled
Lest the fire extinguishes
And the spirit riddled

Move on
Don’t stop to wave at anyone
So you won’t be a slave
For all eternity

His grace is all sufficient.
