This World Is Passing Away

“But this I say, brethren, the time is short, so that from now on even those who have wives should be as though they had none,
those who weep as though they did not weep, those who rejoice as though they did not rejoice, those who buy as though they did not possess,
and those who use this world as not misusing it. For the form of this world is passing away.” 1 Corinthians 7:29-31

I am more attached to the world than I know myself to be.

Lord, I desire to learn the difference between worldly cares and caring about the world. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Fading

The world that I see
keeps passing away
fading more and more
into the gray
so my hope and life
can’t be anchored here
for this temporary place
one day will disappear.
