Not Candy on The Top

 Not Just Candy on the Top
 Shining, glorious
 On top
 That bright red
 Gleaming, glistening
 On top of whipped crème
 A most delicious berry
 Just a nice add-on
 Makes it more enticing
 Milkshake underneath
 Solid, frothy
 Coming closer to being
 But tis an unnecessary
 Does not decrease
 Or increase
 The shake beneath
 Or detract from its
 To make us wish it
 To devour
 I sometimes think
 Of God & Christ
 We have made
 Like that cherry
 That piece on top
 of stuff
 A small enhancement,
 Merely a small piece
 Of fluff
 In comparison to
 That solid milkshake
 Rest of our lives
 Are we really going to
 Wait until our body dies
 To see reality,
 God’s importance,
 Why wait until that time 
 Of crisis?
 Today, make God
 The solid majority
 Of your life
 Desire most 
 The Lord
 Of all the angelic hosts
 The center of your being
 As ephemeral you become
 & more fleeting!
