Out of the box, to stay

Better World Books boxes stacked to my right I wonder at the words hidden from my sight Could go on-line and browse the site To see what other authors' write But I'm not sure I want the fright Some days so good not to know The power went out along time ago But for now it is turned on Lets hope it all isn't another con The competition doesn't bother me at all I fight with myself enough as I take the last curtain call I fall But on my knees God is tall And He lifts me up to carry the ball So I continue to go To toss, to throw To play

How wonderful to pass "the ball" to others when you have received God's grace, Autumn. The power of your words will burn eternally and it will never be said your "power went out a long time ago." Great write, Autumn! Love, Carolyn
