Things Are Not Always What they Seem...

PAD Challenge day 14: For today’s prompt, pick a popular saying and make that the title of your poem; then, write your poem.
The harder the battle the sweeter the victory-Roland

Things are not always what they seem;the first appearance deceives many; the intelligence of a few perceives what has been carefully hidden . Phaedrus

Things are not always what they seem
Dreams, darling with delight
After their thrill of whim is filled
Cannot quell appetite

Free will, feels freer than it is
Never free of its charge
Where we adore or just ignore
The love of God at large

The voice of choice often seems small
And quite irrelevant
Yet, it begets the seed that sets
In motion, what we plant

Things are not always what they seem
Life’s trial and its hurt
Produces in its end, my friend
A patience-perfect work

© Janet Martin

 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, when you encounter trials of many kinds,
Allow perseverance to finish its work, so that you may be mature and complete, 
not lacking anything.…

James 1:2-4
