“Believe in Me”

posted in: Poems | 1

My belief in Jesus does not make him more real! It might, however, make me more real…

In April of 2020, living under stay-at-home orders, my daughters and I began the “Quarantine Sonnet” Project. Each day, we each tried to write a sonnet, and we posted them on the wall of our hallway!

Believe in Me

 "Making Jesus real to you" they say
I blink; I'm troubled by the thought that I
Could make my Maker, even in my eye.
Is he not real, unless I feel and pray?
Like Tinkerbell, does Christ just fade away,
Become less real, if I neglect to try?
Or can I lose him somewhere in my psy-
che, beneath distractions of the day?
When I forget my Lord he will not gray,
Grow dim and fuzzy where he dwells on high--
If anyone will fade, it's me, and I
Will lose my saturation, thoughts will fray.
O, make me real enough to see you, Lord.
Clap me back to life when I grow bored.
