Sadness

Sadness

“Select only strong, healthy, and good-looking young men,” he said (Daniel 1:4; NLT).

They were all attractive young men, captains and commanders dressed in handsome blue (Ezekiel 23:6; NLT).


Yesterday,
I saw a gang of scaffolders
Working together
On a house –

Young men in the prime of life,
Tall and healthy,
Capable and strong,
Full of energy and cheerfulness.

I smiled at them,
And blessed them in my heart;
Then envied them,
For being everything I’m not;

Then wept,
Because of all I’ve never been,
And never will be
In this life.
