Psalm 1 A tale of two men

A Lexio meditation on Psalm 1

Two men went out on a paved road one day .

On it , They sought To Find Truth, Life and Way .

So “ blessed “ and “ wicked “ became their name .

Named by the pursuit in which they sought fame.

One day , the two split at a cross walk in life.

They parted in peace, as pals, without strife.

See “Blessed “ had stopped at the tree in the road

While “ wicked “walked on to where wild oats are sowed.

“ Blessed “just could not move his body from the tree.

When Wicked called “come find a place to be me”

On the path ,Wicked marveled to look at self and men

Soon Being “ Friend” to all who scorn , scoff and sin

At dark Wicked would then sleep with silica and steel,

So by dawn , wasted Wicked could no longer think or feel

While Blessed only pressed his heart against the tree

And from dawn to dusk heard thump thump “ abide in me”

Through every season “Blessed “never would pull or part

He clung to tree though seeing “ Wicked “ did grieve his heart

He saw “Wicked” rolling down from dusk to morn

Down paths into dark pits of Satans scoff and scorn

Where Wicked burned in fire pits of doubt and sin

Scorched, Wicked then became chaff blown in the wind

But Still Blessed pressed against the mighty tree

Clinging to say “Lord Have Mercy on Wicked and Me”

“Blessed” never moved down a path or was swayed in the wind

He Steadfast leaned against the tree and he was grafted in

Even in 2021 Wicked or Blessed ,so are we

Either Wind blown by fame into the fire

or Grafted by the Spirit into Eternity’s Tree
