JOYOUSLY

Confusion on a city street,

With the noise incessant!

Horns blaring and people cursing,

Sounds not so pleasant!

.

.

Of course, one can get used to it

The regularity

Expectant, think nothing of it!

But annoying decidedly!

.

.

Then peace once home and tranquil, yes!

Easy chair, shed the shoes,

Daily paper and that TV show!

Or even the evening news.

.

.

This realty we can anticipate,

Of course, most the time!

But as we well know in some cases

It is not so sublime!

.

.

Sure, drunkenness is accountable

In some cases, some homes,

And once in hell they can expect

The same!  Far worse with groans!

.

.

Much groaning decidedly true!

With fire all around!

Especially the fires or regrets,

Lamenting the sound.

.

.

What more then can sound be accounted for?

Of course, very much pain!

“Fires of hell!”  That was chosen,

Why then was Christ slain?

.

.

Through a hell He went, just for us!

Consider His expectancy,

His place up there with its joys!

Then slow death for you and me.

.

.

If we suffer with Him we will reign with Him!

Those losses through death,

The pain that He suffered for you and me,

Do we die with every breath?

.

.

If we can live now expectantly

Through all sorrows and woe,

In anticipation of heavens joys

Joyously we should go!

.

.
