Hunger

Hunger comes,
The soft gnawing
At the pit of flesh
But to be hungry--
Starved and deprived
For days upon days
Unable to satisfy basic human need
Or rectify pain...
Emerging in oneself
Ravenous with need,
Emptiness sprouts from inside
Masking any trace of humanity.
A controllable instinct
Rearing its head,
Propelling the journey to survival...
The soft rumbling of stomach pains
Suppressed by the cry of mental strain,
Wondering when and how
The next meal will come.
Wait patiently for the harvest to grow
Sow the seed you hope to reap
All while focus wanes,
Strength fades and the body grows weak.
But trust holds strong and instinct doesn't lie,
When the craving is satiated
The body will be whole
Unbroken and risen like fresh bread
Rising silently
In the heat of life's oven,
Hungering not.

About

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
