Great Expectations

A quad-tanka poem by Shazzar Kallie

Great expectations
lift me above all burdens
becoming the best
I can be audaciously
fulfilling my destiny.

My head is held high
gazing upwards to the sky
as inspiration
ascends me to higher heights
living a heavenly life.

I will soar on wings
like eagles with renewed strength
up yonder in Christ
as a champion who runs
on the righteous road of grace.

Hope and a future
given by the Lord is planned
for me without harm,
but filled with prosperity
and wisdom through agape.
