Glory Awaits




This is a poem that I wrote for a friend struggling with depression.

It is based on this passage of scripture for the Bible:

Romans 8:18

“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time

Are not worth comparing with

The glory that is

To be revealed to us.”


The writer of this ancient text,

Had no idea what would happen next.

He knew that death was likely near,

But it was something he did not fear.


If he can look in the face of death,

And boldly say, not under his breath,

These sufferings of today are nugatory,

Compared to all the things awaiting me in glory.


Then I can surely do the same,

I can boldly stand and proclaim,

That the things of this life won’t get me down,

For one day, I’ll be in glory with the Lord, renowned.
