mere anarchy

Written by Kimberly Roth : August 5, 2008

Sometimes
foundations have to crumble
in order
to break new ground.

The center
that once held
is now
dangling from the fringe.

What is new
may not be true
but,
then again,
what was
was not
either.

Sometimes
questions have to surface
in order
for answers to emerge.

The certainty
that once soothed
is now
scratching to get out.

What is new
may not be sure
but,
then again,
what was
was not
either.

Sometimes
things fall apart
in order
to come together.

The cracks
that once tormented
are now
letting in the light.

What is new
may not be pure
but,
then again,
what was
was not
either.

    I love the refrain. That's really been the tune I've been walking to the beat of....I may not be correct right now, but the path I was on surely wasn't. :)

    This touches the feeling I get when I read the headlines these days. Things are a'crumblin', but the light of God's possibilities is starting to shine through. What inspired this poem?

    Kimberly! God be blessed for having created you!

    Just a note. I had a devil of a time trying to find your blog and finally realized that your above link www. barefootbohemian.blogspot.com/ won't work with the "www" in front of it. Please alert others! and/or change it on your pages. God bless you in all you do for God and his people. Joel
