Three As One

Posted in Christianity, poetry with tags , , , , , , on August 20, 2011 by Keith Alan Watson

I went on this path one day – off the straight and narrow way

looking to find the unknown – unafraid to be alone

a skip in my stride – my smile a mile wide

passion perspiring inside.

.

Suddenly! There’s a shadow – beside my own.

“It can’t be so!” No one came with me, I know.

Nobody else wished to go.

Who could it be then? How shall I begin?

Where did it happen and when?

.

I’ll tell you a secret now – that only you can allow.

Stick with me for one moment – maybe you’ll find atonement.

Do you not have the time? It won’t cost a dime.

(Don’t be scared. It’s just a rhyme.)

.

Okay? Now, back to the trail…

not knowing that I could fail – sensing a treasure ahead

I take a left turn instead.

And to my surprise – right before my eyes

this other shadow complies.

.

I look – but no one is there!

With reason, I must compare…

Judging it, I do declare, “It’s not my own!”, but I swear,

it stayed right with me. I giggled with glee!

(Quite strange, you might agree.)

.

And so, I strode on through the wood

wond’ring if two shadows could

converge as one, if the light

from the sun was angled right.

.

I stopped in my tracks, and checked out the facts:

←  Three as One  →

Sun on our backs!

Guardian Shadow appear! Assurance is always near.

Tho’ crossroads never seem clear,

Directions tell me not to fear.

Whichever I choose, I know I can’t lose.

He’s already paid my dues!

For there are three that bear record in heaven,

the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost:

and these three are one.

1 John 5:7
