Yesterday’s UU Lent Posting: Suffering

Standard

Crumpled Up Shirt

I’m a mess,

Just like this shirt.

Wet,

Ill-fitting,

Crumpled.

Tired

Worried,

Stressed.

But I did what I needed to do.

Opportunities

Standard

Seize every opportunity
That comes your way.
You may not think it’s time,
But opportunities
Never stay.

Take it
While it lasts.
It may not seem
Like the right time,
But it will be part of
Your story.

Today’s UU Lent Posting: Fear

Standard

Empty Bowl

Everything lost,
Everything gone,
Nothing to look forward to.
Everything as empty
As this bowl,
I fear.

UU Lent Posts

Standard

Hi All!  As a way of observing Lent in a UU-friendly way, I, along with many other members of my Unitarian Universalist congregation, will be posting photos and captions relating to daily words and phrases on blogs and other social media throughout February and March.  Please stay tuned! 🙂

Some Reward!

Standard

Shunned
Humiliated
Not accepted

You tell me to do
What I like.
You tell me to be
Who I am.

Why do you
Reward me
This way?

Far Away

Standard

I found the class,
Got a spot
Of my own.
Tomorrow, first day,
But today, all that seems so far away.

 

Where’s my class gone?
Where’s the happiness it brought?
Will tomorrow come?
Today,
All that seems so far away.

 

Today is the middle of a
Mud sandwich,
Between two delectable
Slices of bread.
First slice behind me,

Second beyond.
Will I ever find it?
Will I slosh through the mud in time?

 

Maybe, but today,
All that seems
So far away.
