A Poem by Angelena Vernon
What grieves my spirit and baffles me
Is the performance of leaders in our society
A democracy that governs what we can do
Laws that are constitutional but cannot benefit you
Watching people struggle to make ends meet
Hearing about police brutality on the streets
Corruption among elected officials and politicians too
Has grieved many in our nation and not just a few
What makes my heart heavy and troubles me
Is how people analyze everything they see
How some are oppressed and walking in fear
Why we don’t want to endure hardships or persevere
With the cost of living expenses being sky high
Cremation is not an option when some people die
The times and the seasons are in God’s hands
He sanctions what will occur based on his plans
Nevertheless, what the world is experiencing now
I am fully persuaded we will prevail somehow
So why are we unsettled about the unknown
Things we cannot avoid that will be shown
Trials we cannot alter that God ordained
Miraculous miracles that no one can explain
No matter what befalls you or me
We must run to God and embrace
His love strength peace and unmerited grace
Psalm 91: 1 – Those that dwell in the shelter of the highest will remain secure and rest in the shadow of the Almighty [whose power no one can withstand].
“Vexation of the Soul was written based on the trying times we are facing today. Sometimes the pressures of life come from every direction."
