I Am All That You Need

The Voice

a monchielle*


“I am all that you need.”
I detect a low voice,
but mad enough to spit,
I am out of control.
My fists clinch for a hit.

“I am all that you need.”
God’s prompt is clearly heard.
Still raving and ranting,
deeper breaths come now with
the barbs I am planting

“I am all that you need.”
ever so faint but firm.
My loud bellowings fade.
I sense further threats but
my anger meets blockade.

“I am all that you need.”
becomes sweet memory,
His promise true and rare.
God cools my folly down
and turns my heart to prayer.
written by Reason A. Poteet

*The monchielle is a poem that consists of four five-line stanzas where the first line repeats in each verse.  Each line within the stanzas consist of six syllables, and lines three and five rhyme.

The rhyme pattern is Abcdc Aefgf Ahiji Aklml.

Such a good poem and the subject familiar to all of us, I'd think. I admire those who study the different types of poetry, but I don't. God bless!

About the Poet
Growing older with some pains and discomfort, graying hair, glasses, partial plate and hearing aids but with complete assurance of my eternal domain. Saved by choice by God�s free grace by Jesus� life, death and resurrection. Born and bred in the Bluegrass State for 24 years, I crossed the Ohio River and became a Hoosier forever thereafter until that time God calls me to my heavenly home. Christian for fifty-five plus years. Church musician and SS teacher for most all of my Wednesdays and Sundays. Public school teacher for thirty-six school terms; retired with a class now of three grandchildren off and on during the week. Wife for half my life to the same superman. Mama to two unique sons. Mother-in-law to a fine daughter; Nana to one darling girl and two handsome guys. God has blessed me abundantly; thank you, Father. God quiets my hackles; God quickens my heart; God quells my hunger. Blessed be His holy name.
