And when he prayed to him, the Lord was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the Lord is God.

2 Chronicles 33:13 (NIV)

What will it take for you to believe in the power of God? When Jesus walked the earth so many people wanted to see signs and wonders to believe. Even the apostle Thomas, someone who had followed Jesus during His earthly ministry, who had seen the sight of the blind restored, the leprous made clean, deaf ears opened, and the dead raised, said, when He was told that Jesus was alive, after having seen Him die, “unless I see the nail marks in his hands and put my finger where the nails were, and put my hand into his side, I will not believe” (John 20:25 NIV).

One bad day,
after another-
One more, to
ease the pain.
Just, one more.

Curled, wrapped,
in the News, of
the day.
Soaked,
shivering-
sorting it
out.

Lens lie, on
Silver screens.
Opening night,
taking a bite-
I try, not
to gag.

Ocean waves,
override, this
yammering,
spewing, on
and on,
lips moving,
washing,
over me.

Zappity zap,
lightning cage,
insects burn.

Mayday! Mayday!

Breaking the glass,
in case, of emergency.
Checklist:
Dictionary, got it.
Thesaurus, thank God!
Speling? speling?!
Spelling book, whew.

Remington, a savior,
dark times,
pen and paper, familiar
companions.

The Internet, is gone.
Hoping, it’s just us.
Holding out.
Fifteen, grueling
minutes. Hoping
someday,
someone,
will find,
this message,
in this
bottle.

Standing firm-
convicted. I had
everything. Stumbling,
upon you-
a bad day.

Empty handed,
barren feet, fed
up, needing
distraction,
from the Heat.

Sweet sixteen,
so sour, the
words, expectations-
Glamour knew me,
Prosperity beckoned-
feeding bushes-
with loathing.

Running rat,
chasing cheese.
Oh please. Be
a good boy.
Provide, like a
man. Sobbing-
finding a
vein.

Pain today,
gone tomorrow.
