Not a Word
Poetry By Anthony James

Not a Word

every where I turn-
I get burned-
my plight is a flight
I am on, alone-

I sit in a chair, all alone
I see so many empty seats
behind One Throne-
and I sit quietly-
I say nothing, I have no desire to say
even 1 word.

I literally and figuratively 'have nothing to say'

and what do I see?

I see Jesus-
He is looking at me
and I at He-

and I feel like I'm back as a child in a classroom and my Teacher has asked me to stay after school-


I look at Him and He smiles at me
and I run to Him,
I hug Him and there are no more words
at all.
