OVERCOMING TORTURE OF FRUSTRATION

I loathe the grief of frustration torture Especially when my care-giving work is jeopardized Caused by misjudgment of no regard to rendered sacrifices Bringing to naught my volunteerism-spirit Prodded with love’s motive, optimized graciously. When gripped by the torments of failure’s misery I cling to God and cleave to His power with faith Confessing faults, admitting incompetence... Delighting in His pardon, I move toward stewardship triumph’s height While defying self-pity’s dominance. Thus, I conquer awful downfall guilt Overcoming taunting mockery of negative criticism Striving as champion midst persistence-bout Vanquishing allurements toward comfort zone lingering Prevailing over clouts of scheming vanities. Here I bask in the Lord's assured freedom around joyous peace ...Plunging into His compassionate rejuvenation Believing that He knows my servant’s heart As well as my intentions’ secrets which echo sincerity’s shouts… Despite unfair treatments, I trust God’s perfect judgment*, always best!
*Deuteronomy 32:4 He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. October 12, 2018 2nd place, "Any New Free Verse Poem" Poetry Contest Sponsored by Lu Loo; judged on 10/28/2018.
