Fly or Flounder


How the same things that

Give me wings

Also hold me down.

As I’ve written

Many times before,

I’ve reconnected with many friends


I’ve also made some new ones.

I love it.




And yet

I’d have to say…

I’m addicted.

Even though I tell myself

I’ll only check my messages

Morning, noon, and night,

I never follow through.

Even now,

Both facebook and email

Are open.

I’m like a little child.

I don’t want to miss anything.


I can only accomplish

What I want,

What I should,

If I focus.


Will I choose to fly

Or flounder?

I choose…


For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10 NIV).

  1. Love the verse you choose. Love the thoughts your poem expresses so well. Face it – you are a people person. 😉 A good thing. 🙂 We were created for relationship with Him and others. So glad you are being the best you can be. He knows and blessings await. Another smiley face to you, my dear Stephanie. 🙂
