Holy is the Lamb

Some folks live in a box, 
a box of their own making.
They're comfortable there 
like the old woman in a shoe.

A box can be great protection
from the weather, from strange things
and occurrences. But life 
was not meant to be lived in
a box … man was given the world.

Some folks swear, they know the Lamb of God.
[In times of old, no mere man would utter 
the name of God > even if they knew it.]
Yet, now a days [At least since men, gathered,
and sorted, and pared, the writings of the ancients ... ]
people go about shouting the name of the Lamb, Jesus.
[Letting Him out-of-the-box … so to speak,
the box of man’s mind and heart.]

Now God [The one with the capital G] 
never did like being called … So be very, careful
when you let Jesus out of the box.
that you don’t put your words in His mouth.
I’d say Jesus has been out of 
a box since the stone rolled away from the crypt. 
[Lucky for some of us, unlucky for others.]

*The Anapora devise [repeated word or phrase] within the poem is [box]

    Nicely said about the safety in box and out of box. Being within the World if Jesus is kept out of the World box, no safety is there indeed. Lovely done, my lovely friend. Good luck in the contest. Loved always,bl

    There is so much technique in this work. My work must drive you crazy is so vacant of any discipline. I absolutely love reading poetry at this level. I may not be able to apply it but I do recognize it. Thank You.

    That's good :) I can see this as a conversation, just a smooth talk with a dramatically good tone. I like it, good luck in the contest :) hugs
