A Poem: Still Good


Has such a small full word
ever existed?
“It is good”, He first proclaimed,
when the earth was laid.

It has ever been good,
as the centuries have progressed,
and the play of time
run its course.

Goodness, has unravelled
as a ribbon,
on the heels of a humanity
made in His image.

Though we have sought to pierce
the heart of goodness,
‘Good’, the small full word,
was already established.

For our ‘Good News’,
Christ with God, already existed
long before
we each were created.

Our ‘Good News’
incarnate in His son,
is the light the darkness
has never extinguished.

The light in the unravelling ribbons
of our journeying,
from time’s dawn to now,
is still present.

So that we can wake
each new dawn to pronounce,
“It is good”,
along with Him.

‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.  In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.’
John 1-5
