For The One I Know

For the One I Know

In the ray of the rising sky
Will I raise my voice to the Most High
To glorify His Gracious name
The one that is never the same
With anything or bear by lords or gods.
On kneel will I affirm that no gods
Like Him. He is pure, He is One
And will remain Holy One in town.
His mercy cut across Whole clan
He mold. His Glorious vein... and His 'can'
Makes Him the Ever-living Superior
Being. While all remain inferior
Of everything a nation or society
Can claim. He maintains unequivocal entity
In history, as far as minds know
And as far as ancestors flow;
No Wisdom will... or surpassed His
“Being” and “Being Not”, which is of His
Understanding, the why- no one overrules Him.
Signs… and knowledge is Him,
That no mission and vision mask His bowls:
The why His “Be” and “Be not” is beyond owls.

At the climax of the caressing heavens
Will I not retreat to bow, and will bring on His evens
To the navel, the sea, the fountain, the soil…
And by His Grace will I cease not but toil 
And eat joyfully from my earnings;
To equally appreciate my bearings,
And confer respect and honor -the glue-
To whom, He stressed and concurred, is due…
For God,  and only Him will I not stop being loyal… 
And will I not complain… with little or no royal.

I pray at the verge of collapse:
An alternating moment of taps,
Should I not, get tired of exalting His names.
For He’s Ever-worthy of His names; 
Deserving is He to be glorified -the loving good God;
And Worthy is He to me -the Almighty God.

Will I not: I will not
Should I not: I should not

    Now I got what you're saying Eileen. To answer your question, Line 4 is created in the sense that it will be linked with line 5 and possibly line 6 before the message can be gotten down to heart; this doesn't contradict the Never-Changing Existence of God. The contest is all about bring on enjambment. That is bringing on run on lines or linking lines- It's part of poetic devices. AO

    His worthiness makes my pen never stop writing for Him.Thanks for visiting Pace.

    Yes...He is worthy of glory and honor and praise. We are all his children. What an amazing tribute, AO...My one comment is that line that says He is ever changing. I believe His character is constant. He is the same today, yesterday, and forever....A God of love, mercy, and justice! :) Thanks for sharing!

    Eileen, I sure believe in God' not otherwise. All one need is to connect oneself with the poem. Concentrate and you will not miss the my open view. Again, 'Enjambment' was at play in the work. Thanks for taking your time to visit again. AO

    I'm referring to line 4, my dear. I do believe that the different titles for God show us different aspects of His character, but I believe that His character is never changing. I'm referring to a verse from my Holy Book, the Bible, which reads that He is the same, yesterday, today and forever. It is just a matter of how we see things. It was a lovely write, AO. :) I'm sure He is smiling down at you!

    Is not Him I was referring to in the "...alternating moment..." line, which I think is the line you referred to. It was however my exit to Him... It's this day and this way I do not know of that I seek to never be misguided by. Thanks for visiting.
