Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted

It is hard to not worry, even if God always gets us through. But the unknown is scary, and sometimes God gives us more than we can bear unless we change, and I think that's His purpose in our tribulations. Thanks for sharing. Patricia

This work has reached the exceptional level
DJeckert, before I looked at this poem, I read your bio, and then the discussion about coincidence. I became so curious that I read this poem with more interest than I would have done if I didn't have a clue about your thinking.
First: I like it a lot. It is a very political statement, more than a poem, but: it rhymes, has a clear meaning, makes me think.
The first line appeals to me, it is so true: the reality of today is not something to be so happy with, but if (looked it up in Webster) "it becomes a pleasurable use of possession", the whole poem emanates a cynical outlook. I agree: the wasted time could have been spent better contemplating the wonders of God's grace.
Super work. Thank you
