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
