Five worms - a poem


Yesterday I had seen a worm
not one, but really there were five,
and though this wasn’t new to me,
I learned from this, God was alive.

When I bent down over the first,
He told me there would be four more
and as I plodded along the path,
God Himself was keeping score.

I learned something about His will,
about how He would always intervene,
I learned how He would not back down
once He decided what should have been.

As I walked and talked with Him,
I learned that my help was not required,
that God would see the whole thing through
with no assistance from me acquired.

In the end I had seen five worms,
but these I did not really get to know
for it was to God that I was introduced
in this spectacular nature show.
