Z (the letter)
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Z

‘Z’ is last - but not in this poem!
Letters take thought and patience to grow 'em.
 
‘A’ seems reserved for its special space,
and may have tantrums if not in first place.
 
Twenty-five letters still have to be passed,
to find that lone ‘Z’ which was meant to be last.
 
I ponder the meaning of last and not first,
and wonder at one point if ‘Z’ had been cursed.
 
But ‘Z’, in this poem has gotten first place.
Hopefully that puts a smile on its face!
 
The day will soon come where first will be last,
the last will be first and won’t be surpassed.
 
Now here is a secret so keep your eyes peeled,
and maybe you’ll find every letter revealed.
 
It was quite a chore to mix letters this way,
but this time - in last place - you'll find letter ‘A’.

Mark 9:(NASB)
34 But they kept silent, for on the way they had discussed with one another which of them was the greatest.
35 Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, "If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all."
36 Taking a child, He set him before them, and taking him in His arms, He said to them,
37 "Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me."
