Have you ever experienced this conundrum?
whose source of which I've wrestled long this lifetime to comprehend.
Perhaps you, too, experience it and its meaning you've come to know.
It happens out of nowhere, when most blissful state you're in,
and just as you embrace the moment, a warning voice sounds off,
"Beware, before you hold too tight, the other shoe will drop."
You listen to it, obediently respond, voice steals the promised joy.
I know God gifts to us spirit of discernment to show the way,
could this nudge be His loving way to prepare us for coming hurt?
To ignore His gentle wisdom offered would be a slap in His face.
Yet I also know the enemy speaks, his words, though, always a lie.
Is it from him we feel this dreaded fear of bomb about to fall?
My conundrum creates confusion which consistently prevents
any willingness to set off to side all guards carefully worn in place,
won't allow myself a belly flop into pool of ecstatic delight,
lifeguard's always standing there, showing dangers found in deep end.
What say you of this phenomenon true, do you experience it, too?
Have you solved the mystery yet, voice's source, from whence it comes?
