Ramona Thompson- Two Poems

Looking Up
So very self absorbed
Always caught up in
What's going on upon that tiny little screen
We lose track
Got no regard
For those around us
Certainly no time
For some big guy
Up in the sky
Lost in translation
Church doors open
But we ain't going through them
Too busy
Chasing that next incoming text message
So quickly times have changed
So quickly we've learned
To leave his teachings behind
One urgent call after another
We take
Forgetting to answer
The most important call of all
Claiming only
So many hours in a day
Just not enough time
What's gonna happen?
When judgement day comes
Lift up those eyes
Even just for a second
Plan Him into your day
Slip Him a moment or two
Can't you afford that much?
Do you really wanna get up there to find
You have a heavy price to pay
For looking down
When all along
You should have been
Looking up instead

God's Gals
So you got a nice, thick booty?
So what?
Do you really think that's gonna save you?
When judgement day comes
Your worth is in your soul
Not your temporary body
No matter how sexy and hot
It's all just window dressing
Don't count at all
When it comes to the bigger blessing
You can shake it
Just like some cheap video vixen
Get your kicks
Your thrills
But at what cost
Is it worth it?
Giving in to the flesh
When so much more awaits
In the holy spirit
Life is a passing thing
What comes after is forever
A gift beyond measure
But it can't be yours
Unless you accept it
Embrace Him
For now and forever
Put Him above
Your fleshly beauty
And all the Romeo's sweet words
For His alone are
The only words that truly matter
Come to Him now
Come to Him
For always
Turn from that selfie
Hold faster
To what is holy
In the spirit
Find your true awakening
Blissful and yours always
Never to be taken away
If you let yourself be
From this moment forward
One of God's gals
For keeps
