A Room That's a Sphere

I live in a room that's a sphere¹
     and finding corners is my job there.
It's not the room I choose for me,
     but the room chosen for me to be.

I live on a planet that is a sphere
     and finding corners is my job there.
It's not the planet I chose for me,
     but the planet chosen for me to be.

I probably could, in either space,
     make my own little two and three
dimensional places and angles
     where two or more lines, sides
or edges do somehow meet,
     but as things here are wont to be,
I would be told such were not
     really corners, but mere fantasy.

After nearly some seventy years,
     you'd think I’d be used to it by now,
but no, of course, I still think I can
     somehow make them finally see.

I see there are no corners indeed,
     I know there's not one corner there,
I just don’t know if those in charge
     don't see, or are messing with me?

What I am learning living as such
     is that what they say or truly see
Doesn't matter one true wit, only
     Who it is that still strengthens me.

¹Irrational or unreasonable or even con-
tradictory requests, demands and expect-
ations made from or by a physical world
that is seen cannot make you or take you
emotional hostage when the reality you
live by is that which is more powerful and
will help you to overcome in the spiritual
and unseen realm.

Faith and prayer are the keys to making the
impossible possible; even though the process
can be very slow and even if our faith is
very small. Jesus said that faith as tiny as
a mustard seed; one of the tiniest seeds on
earth can move mountains  Matthew 17:20

When you face an impossible situation,
remember and repeat:
"God is my strength and power" 2 Samuel 22:33
"With God all things are possible" Matthew 19:26
"We are more than conquerors through Him that
loved us"  Romans 8:37
"God is able to do immeasurably more than all
we ask or imagine"  Ephesians 3:20
"I can do all things through Christ who
strengthens me"  Philippians 4:13
