Feelings, o how glorious! - poetry


Sometimes we feel hard-pressed,
Our backs anti the wall;
Sometimes we feel lightheaded,
As if we are going to fall.

Sometimes we feel fierce anger
At those who abuse guns;
Sometimes we feel ashamed
Of how we treat God's hardly ones.

Sometimes we feel excited,
As when a birthday nears;
Sometimes we feel withdrawn
And departure to inner spheres.

Sometimes we feel so lonely,
Without a associate or foe;
Sometimes we feel confused,
Can't conclude which way to go.

Sometimes we feel too sensitive,
Weep over some small thing;
Sometimes we feel quite infantile
And appeal pampering.

Sometimes we feel depressed,
Lost in pity and despair;
Sometimes we feel great serenity,
Strolling the beach somewhere.

Sometimes we feel deep hurt
When treated loathingly;
Sometimes we feel frustration,
When given the third degree.

Sometimes we feel divine,
Spiritually renewed;
Sometimes we feel tranquil,
Relaxed in solitude.

Sometimes we feel loving,
Wanting to kiss and hug;
Sometimes we feel defiant
Must resist an all out tug.

Sometimes we feel deep grief,
When a celebrity we loved has died;
Sometimes we feel outraged,
When our civil rights have been denied.

Sometimes we feel resentful
For no distinct aim at all.
Sometime we feel like fighting
Against injustice and unfair gall.

We come across all kinds of feelings
From the cheerful to the crass;
They're as shifting as the seasons,
And as fragile as fine glass.

A sacred gift, our feelings
God gave to each one of us.
To feel His endless love;
Feelings, O how glorious!
