The Deadline Nears

The deadline nears, but I can’t give it up —
It needs more work, more polish, more revision;
A paragraph unclear, a sentence broken,
Dangling prepositions, murky vision.
With excess weight and words this work is swollen.

Any day now, Jesus will return,
And we will give account for all our actions,
For every word and thought and secret reason.
I need more time! Too many live distractions!
But grace appears as Heaven’s guiding beacon.


What say you?
