On Struggles



The sun won’t go out walking
The moon don’t need to crawl
My thoughts don’t need to wander
But I think you planned it all

I’ll applaud the team that’s winning
Feeling free to wave the flag
But the wheat will take a thrashing
Before it’s in the bag

A heart awash in sadness
In a brook of fear and shame
Will tumble through the eddies
While it searches out the blame

But amidst the unpanned gravel
There’s a stirring in the fire
God skims the dross from precious gold
So the poor can be its buyer
