Poem: Dive

October 25th, 2004

Looking at this pool
So deep and so broad
Yeah, the waves look rough
And the bottom so far,
But a glimmer and shine
Sparks a light in my eyes
My heart skips a beat
But I sit back and sigh

I can sit at the edge
Throwing my feet in
The foam tickles my ankles
And beckons me in
But just when I feel
It’s time to begin
You’re pulling me back
From the waves once again

Oh why can’t You let me dive?
Why can’t I run and try to reach for the sky?
Why can’t I just fly?
I know it’s Your heart
I know Your command
But why not now, Papa,
Why can’t I dive?

I can see the field
Parts white as snow
No one is gathering
So I grab my bag to go
But a wall comes between me
And the wheat sitting there
So I toss it back down
And watch the wind blow

Oh why can’t You let me dive?
Why can’t I run and try to reach for the sky?
Why can’t I just fly?
I know it’s Your heart
I know Your command
But why not now, Papa,
Why can’t I dive?

I just want to serve You
I just want to go
Though You hold me back now
Someday, it’s Your plan
You’ve got it much better
Than I comprehend
And yes, Lord, I’m anxious
But with You, I’ll stand
