God’s provision is a manna to keep,
A manna to embrace,
A manna to enjoy.
Under the heavens, one can burst with complain
When he knows not the worth
Of even a single drop pouring like rain.
While the other rejoice —
Dancing in the moonlight, in the fiercest milky way
For his prayers have been answered,
His tears, he knows are worth to keep in a bottle.
One can roar like a lion in desperation:
And so he starves but neither he was killed by others’ bow
Nor the strong cravings in his belly
But by grumbling with his poisonous words
Like wearing a snake as a scarf on his neck.
One can ask for more which are outside of his reach,
But there is one who before he asks,
has already greatly received.
His grips are not on his pocket,
Not even on the purses which were secondhand,
But it’s a grip of one who is courageous enough —
The one whose arrows are not trade to the west,
Nor his shield echoes while in defense of his keeps.
The one who knows whom he truly trust:
A trademark of a mighty warrior,
Never peeling in deceit.
Two eyes can be set on the same red sparrow
But in the goodbye of the mist,
Truth is still truth, there’ll be no hidden things.
One eye blurs into the abyss of fire
While the other is embraced with the kiss of the heavens.
We can choose to be one who is choked by his words —
The one whose sword is in his golden chest,
Never knowing the bleeding of his heart,
The one whose spirit is mourning alive.
But rather be the one who is recipient of grace,
Melody is the Sun, shone in his face
The one whose greatest weapon is the decree of his heart
He thirsts of instructions,
Knowing the throne isn’t his.
He dwells in the court of corrections, disowning his pride —
So be the one whose trust is never in his might.
And I will come down and talk with you there. And I will take some of the Spirit that is on you and put it on them, and they shall bear the burden of the people with you, so that you may not bear it yourself alone. And say to the people, Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, and you shall eat meat, for you have wept in the hearing of the Lord, saying, “Who will give us meat to eat? For it was better for us in Egypt.” Therefore the Lord will give you meat, and you shall eat. You shall not eat just one day, or two days, or five days, or ten days, or twenty days, but a whole month, until it comes out at your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you, because you have rejected the Lord who is among you and have wept before him, saying, “Why did we come out of Egypt?”’”
