Flames lick the straw and the
suitcases we pack over a lifetime
with vulnerable items we adore.
We wonder without speaking, what lasts,
what remains the day without perishing?
Building is more than walls, it’s a foundation
buried deep; stones for support, the strength
Fire burns, water quenches, the word of God
creates what wasn’t there, while giving you
beauty for ashes.
The Bible is the rock, the answer for today,
the solution for tomorrow.
