Gears

by Jeff Bidiman

We turn in turns of circular motions;
Gyrating feelings of love and sorrow;
Like delicate gears of mixed emotions
Whose feelings feel real until tomorrow.

Our daily rotations can dizzy us
As all these feelings encircle our ways,
But if we choose to be more like Jesus
We will turn and turn with joyful praise.

Emotions can be encircling lies
Throwing us out of sync with each other,
But if we slow down we may realize
That our gears can mesh with one another.

And so when tomorrow becomes today,
We discover within our spinning spheres,
These feelings we feel will rotate away
When we see that God is turning the gears.
