A Second

A second

A voice spoke, the deep heard

Light created by the word


A second

The world weaved

Life breathed


A second

Lies believed, man fell

Forever separated from the everlasting well


A second

A baby born

The veil between heaven and earth torn


A second

A kiss betrays

An innocent convicted, stays


A second

The guilty released

God betrayed by his own priest


A second

Blood ran red

Lamb to the slaughter was led


A second

Death defeated

Earth given the savoir it needed


A second

Creation doubts the existence of creator

No one needs a savior


A second

Death, destruction, hate abound

No one believes the trumpet will sound


A second

Heaven opens, one who was pierced appears

The glow of his light calms all fears


A second becomes eternity

God is all that is seen


The beginning, the end, the word, God

Time doesn’t hold him–out side of it he does trod


What the Word spoke in the beginning

Never faded, kept on spinning


Light was made

And throughout time stayed


Walk in the light

And the constraints of time won’t be so tight


Our struggle seems an eternity

When we look back, it’s only a second we see


Life in the seconds seems forever

Only because to this earth we have a tether


In the end, when the beginning starts

Time will be taken apart

  1. I admire this depiction of the life of God and of our relationship with eternity. There are two old Greek words for time. Kronos, meaning measured time, as in our modern word chronology. And then Kairos, meaning time that can’t be measured–God’s time. Our word chaos comes out of this. It seems to me you deal in both kinds of time, here.

    I’d like to nominate you for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Here’s my link about that–


    The rules and the award icon are there. Your writing is clever and funny, deep and optimistic. Little wonder that I thought of you for this.

    Hoping this is all right with you, Congratulations!–Christopher


    1. I didn’t know that. Thanks for sharing. I definitely want to look deeper into those two words. It’s fascinating!
      Yeah, I wanted the poem to convey how different God’s time is from ours. If we are feeling stuck in a certain situation, we don’t have to feel discouraged because we know someone who stands out side of time as we know it.
      Thank you so much for the award! I’ll do the post as soon as I can.
      Thanks for your wonderfully insightful comment. 🙂


  2. This is EPIC. “A second becomes eternity/ God is all that is seen” –that is truth right there. I feel like I just got an intimate glimpse into God’s eye and watched the last 4 billion years of earth’s existence flash past in mere seconds. What a poem! What an EPIC! 🙂


    1. Thank you! For some reason this poem gave me the most trouble at first and I didn’t think I was going to finish it. I guess it just proves that good things sometimes look like a mess at first, but we just have to wait until the end result before we judge it. 🙂


I love hearing from you!
