A chapter in the book A Guy Who Likes To Write

Watching The Butterfly

by jmshumate

Stopping to watch the butterfly
Ceasing to ponder reasons why
Sometimes choices cut through a life
Lives often change from peace to strife

Not relevant to justify
Stopping to watch the butterfly
Verdicts made are rarely undone
Pains of the past can't be outrun

Time to stand; the lying stops here
Honest in heart truth becomes clear
Stopping to watch the butterfly
Only God's grace can nullify

Oh, my dear Lord, will you forgive?
Show me the way I should now live
Changing through God's grace I can try
Stopping to watch the butterfly


Thank you to my wife for the photograph
