A poem about choice.

Some are rich, some are poor...

by royowen

While some are poor and some have wealth,
is this mere chance -- or luck by stealth?
But I know this the sun doth rise --
on all that lives, creation's prize.

We enter life as if by chance;
the eyes see light -- its wondrous dance.
While some are poor and some have wealth
some live by luck -- and some by stealth.

And yet I know the sun doth rise --
for God's not taken by surprise;
before creation's stone was laid,
God deemed man's sin by Christ be paid.

In Adam's sin we were conceived,
and God would know and be bereaved.
Yet He determined we'd be free
choosing blindness -- or choice to see.

We may be rich, we could be poor
we enter life by nature's door.
Betwixt the famous or unknown
we're made from flesh...and blood... and bone.

So what care you what kingdom rules
we are indeed somebody's fool.
So if we're stitched by chance and time --
we all will die when in death's prime.

We may be rich, we could be poor
we enter through the self-same door.
By procreation, God's decree --
conception's seeds should all agree.

But man by nature still resists,
and God in love always persists.
I don't know why some men receive
while others turn... God still bereaves.

While the flesh still lives, we can choose death or life, a future and a purpose, or be afraid and cower, shake our fist and die, the rest is by chance.

Isaiah 41:10 "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God, I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
Romans 8:35 "Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall trouble or stress or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword"
Romans 8:37 :"No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."
