ZION

I ask…myself

Where does hope reside
In one’s spirit

Despite obstacle’s
The journey continues

Yesterday cannot be relived
To exact will

For tomorrow’s truth
Lingers for no man

There is no victory
In returning to yesterday

Though we all desire
Our memories to be reborn

The promise must be held
Throughout the daily struggle

It is the clear mind that sees
Zion is only a lifetime distant

The answer…myself

    That's why I get so caught up in nostalgia. If we had a deeper perspective of how it really was, we might look more with anticipation to what's ahead instead of what's past. A lifetime distant? Makes one think. Have a great day, Charlie. Vince

    As I am unfortunately not allowed to disclose certain information regarding gifts I have been somehow chosen to aquire. I do have a question for you. I was led to this beautiful poem today, much like I was to the book of Isaiah early this morning. Is there a prophesy in the Scriptures regarding the daughter of Zion, helping others through the Tribulation period? Is it an actual female, or the city of Jerusalem as a whole? Peace, Ivy

    Very well stated, Charlie. You remind me it has been a while since I sat down and read the bible. Thanks, God Bless, Cile
