I wanted to stop
looking in each shop.
It wasn’t by my choosing
and felt I was losing
most of my time
in the day’s prime.
All afternoon
shopping was the tune.
Just to look and see
was such a waste for me.
Plus, the brightness of the sun
for me was no fun.
So I decided to come here
and give my poem ear,
which helps the time go by.
Then I decided to try
reciting my Scripture verses.
Doing this reverses
all my negative thought,
for God is whom I sought.
