I write what I feel…

Chasing Shadows



This life is but a shadow of that which is to come
A dream-like reality laying down the groundwork
For truth and authenticity and a new life with God
Our Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Three in One.

Jesus came to earth to show us the way,
That without our ego’s we are nothing
But what we imagine ourselves to be,
Chasing material wealth and properties
That will be worthless in the life to come.

Our earthly possessions own us, in fact,
As we strive to keep them safe while we’re alive
And to accumulate even more, but what for?
Where’s the sense of laying up earthly treasure
And receiving no reward?

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
