Forty Days

a sonet by Tina Augustus

How blessed is the man who walks with thee.

Who pleases no one first within his care.

Committing to your name, sweet loyalty,

will witness wonders formed beyond life’s airs!

To push aside the things that please us best,

with focused minds geared at the end results.

Jesus Christ succeeded with his test.

Now I too fast receiving harsh insults.

Day twenty-five I felt like I was left

behind to suffer by myself, alone.

Like no one cared or knew just how I felt,

to see myself shrink down to almost bones.

Day forty’s come and now I see the prize

of God blessing me and I’m still alive!
