real life is do



things have been completely
out of whack here lately.


my to do list
which grew to a to do pile
is now multiple to do piles,
completely covering my desk.
i don’t even know where to begin.


i’ve bought new file folders,
but they are still sitting in their box,
in one of the piles atop my desk.


school papers are being swallowed up by my house
and i’ve been waking in the middle of the night
wondering what i’m already forgetting to remember
to do tomorrow.


and that’s only the messes not going on in my heart.


so i will counteract all of that
with a bigger list of my gifts
that i’m trying oh-so-hard to notice
and not allow to also get swallowed up by my house
or by the distractions in my heart.

He will teach us his ways,
so that we may walk in his paths.”
The law will go out from Zion,
the word of the Lord from Jerusalem
Isaiah 2:3b
