“INSOMNIA!” a poem. a.k.a.: “Refreshing Your Faith!”* 08/07/2018 – Tues. 4B
Terror at Night; Terror-in-the-Day;
Desperate for sleep, in ev-ery way:
“The Life of Brian” is not happy and sweet,
Without good zzzz’s, nothing’s-very-neat:
Dragging, tired, questioning WHY?
Sleep is fleeting, so, with a sigh:
“Experts”-are-consulted – for some sleeping pills,
Or prescription “vitamins,” and NOW there are bills,
To support some regimented – medicinal-strategy,
To get better sleep – ‘Tis-a-bloody-travesty!
RESTFUL SLEEP? It comes from God? or, so The Bible say,
Anything else? Well, my friend: There might be Hell to pay!
Good ol’ Lucifier will let you – sleep for 24/7,
BUT – no real rest in His dire lair- on-el-ly in Heaven!?
If you get some “good sleep,” now, it will refresh your body,
So, when you wake – “rest assured,” you will not feel shoddy,
For, even as much as 12-big-hours – of continual “slumber,”
Without-your-being-truly-refreshed – doesn’t make “good lumber::
IF you wanna saw some helpful logs, and dream both deep & true,
Here is something – that really may – be critical for you:
For, when you sleep and “get past” dreams,
The BLESSED SLEEPER, so it seems,
Will find him(her)self, in The Bosom Of God –
That feature alone, many applaud:
It is said: “IF you can reach God’s SACRED SPACE,
Your body-will-heal – and-your-soul-finds-embrace:”
IN GOD’S BOSOM, YOUR SPIRIT’S ENRICHED; YOUR MIND’S RELAXED; AND YOUR BODY’S “UN-STITCHED,” so your Heart will open – to a refreshing day – where you can smile and go out “to play.”
Perhaps, everyone’s trying for such sacred repose,
But, I’ve been told by an archangel that knows,
THERE’S NO “GETTING” THERE, no sort of mediTation,
That really-can assist – likewise, (pause) no mediCation –
For The Truth is (?) :
YOU-ARE-ALWAYS – IN “THE-BOSOM-OF-GOD-CONDITION,”
But IT’S ABOUT YOUR FAITH, your simple faith – not some high position!
So, IF God’s bosom – you would dare,
Just know: YOU’RE ALREADY, EVER THERE!
With this faithful prayer,** now – close your eyes,
And sleep in PEACE: It’s Your Greatest Prize! 🙂
* – in the direction of “the peace which pass-eth understanding!”
** – Bedtime Mantra (or prayer): “WHETHER I RECOGNIZE IT OR NOT, EVEN IF I HAVE BEEN ‘TALKED OUT OF IT,’ I AM NOW & ALWAYS – IN THE BOSOM OF GOD, AND I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR BEING SO BLESSED, AS A POWERFUL, SPIRITUAL BEING, A CHILD OF GOD!” Amen. 🙂
