How far have we come from where God wants us to be?
Pond Poetry Contest Entry for June
Form for this month: Quatern
Requirements: A Quatern is a sixteen line French form composed of four quatrains. It is similar to the Kyrielle and the Retourne. It has a refrain that is in a different place in each quatrain. The first line of stanza one is the second line of stanza two, third line of stanza three, and fourth line of stanza four. A quatern has eight syllables per line. It does not have to be iambic or follow a set rhyme scheme.




How far have we come from where God wants us to be?
Are we living a life of autonomy?
Do we pray every day for His Loving Hand,
To guide and direct us in His Master plan?

Do we treat our neighbors always lovingly?
How far have we come from where God wants us to be?
Do worldy things beckon? You must take a stand!
Turn back to Jesus, the Savior of man.

All around us we witness the decay firsthand.
Chaos and confusion! Good sense has been banned!
How far have we come from where God wants us to be?
Where will we spend our eternity?

Repentance from sin on a scale that is grand
Seems to be what is needed across this great land.
Return this, our nation to greatness, we plea.
How far have we come from where God wants us to be?
