The hands clasped
What haven’t you grasped?
Today, if you hear His voice
Do not hardened your hearts
With your cap in hand
Where does your mind stand?
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence
So the Holy Spirit can take up residence
I jump rope with a small rope as adult
And I do the hurdle jump with sandals
It’s like riding a bike without handles
It’s time to put my fears behind me
But I am scared of the unknown that goes into infinity
I got still have my braces
And I won’t have room for dentures
Because the inner child left behind her adventures
As a child the more you try to be an adult
You’ll be one to a fault
Preschoolers play on those swings
And 2nd graders play the tether ball
Take your close curiosities to the distant mall
