Time Spent with the Beloved – by Rashna Walton

time spent with the Beloved

is a good investment;

in one moment

He will make you richer

than you’ll ever know,

in the next

you can bankrupt yourself

in the palaces of excess;

He doesn’t mind

there’s always more;

keep yourself lean,

that way

you go back to Him

asking for grace,

standing on the threshold

of a vast inheritance

that is rightfully yours;

it is only when you realize this

that you can quit the world

and shine in all your radiance
