The Need for Sabbath: Stop Day

Standard

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
“fine”
but tired eyes
discredit the affirmation
minds are so weary
struggling
trying to order the chaos
of lives
and
tired eyes
can no longer conceal
the purposelessness
of the effort

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