The Problem with Lists




It’s National Poetry Month (#NPM17)…

here is this morning’s poetic offering:


The Problem with Lists

Lists of this,

and that

cause great distraction-


priorities swim

in an ocean of To Do.


People become projects-

tasks to tick off

and I know Jesus

never ticks me off a list,

but shows up

sweating blood

love beading on his brow


Never stares at his phone

too preoccupied

to look up

and see me…


to pause and behold my pain.
