Neutral and Beyond

Numbness

Is a blessing.

Sometimes

The ups and downs

Are too hard to take.

Sometimes

The rollercoaster

Just isn’t any fun.

Sometimes

I think I might just explode

With joy…or sorrow.

In mercy and grace,

There is another option.

Though I wouldn’t want

To remain there long…

For it is impossible

To truly fly

When in neutral…

It can be

A time of rest.

Does it mean

I don’t care?

No.

Does it mean

I won’t feel again?

Absolutely not.

But

I have time to breathe.

I spent much of my day

Lacking intensity.

Just coasting.

And then came the Meeting.

Two young people

Who encourage me

As much as I do them.

Our discussion

Awakened

The part of me I like best.

The part that feels most real.

When thoughts tumble

All over themselves.

And words

Try hard to keep up.

Thank you, my young friends.

You are appreciated.

The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace (Psalm 29:11, NIV).
