Raymond A. Foss Poems

Without Hindrance by Raymond A. Foss
Paul was in Rome, under house arrest
but he received guests, without hindrance,
so ends the book of Acts;
but it is the story of Acts, the sharing,
of unpredictable stars,
milquetoasts who gain spines,
power emboldened disciples speaking
in unknown tongues near and far
of early believers,
a persecutor made proselytizer
of missionaries and martyrs

Giving all or dying for holding back
a time of communal living and squabble
but a moment of proclamation
over and over, without hindrance,
spreading the good news
to the ends of the earth
as eyewitnesses to the creation
the beginning of another age
of love and sacrifice,
of communion and peace
a renewed Eden
if we would just follow His path
