Shakespearean Sonnet: "Needless Distractions"
How can our times be wasted on this Earth?
So much to do around this needy globe.
Our hands a-flailing from that cry of birth
are often serving 'til that shrouded robe.

Are purposes to be a thwarted mess?
Can good be done with breath still in our lungs?
Our days of life are made by God to bless.
Our stories told as songs, that must be sung.

Distractions in the life of Joseph saved
a world unfed by famine's awful fist.
The back of Jesus bloodied as they raved
to kill Him from Salvation's lasting kiss.

Distractions seem a useless waste of time,
but Jesus rose, again, quite in His prime.
