The Need for Sabbath: Stop Day


Stop Day

tired eyes
walking through the world
looking into
tired eyes
bodies are smiling
faces are laughing
“how are you?”
and lips are always responding
but tired eyes
discredit the affirmation
minds are so weary
trying to order the chaos
of lives
tired eyes
can no longer conceal
the purposelessness
of the effort

tired eyes
are searching for a
stop day
spinning minds
are filled with their all-important
tired eyes
seeking the Truth
warily awaiting
the King
who brings
order into
the King
who declares a
Stop Day
tired eyes
to rest
