Are You Making Progress, Pilgrim?

In the city of destruction... a graceless man was he...
Yet he made this deduction... of coming tragedy...
He warned the ones most close to him... yet they dismissed his claim...
Are you making progress, pilgrim? Or are things just the same?
The sad man left the happy home... where once he felt so safe...
Compelled to wander and to roam... now fearful, not so brave...
And on the way, guilt built in him... till all at once he fell...
Are you making progress, pilgrim? Or on the road to Hell?
Then suddenly, he saw the Cross... and Jesus sacrificed...
And knew that Jesus died because... He was God's Son, the Christ!
And then, by faith, believed in Him! Forgiven every sin...
Are you making progress, pilgrim? If yes, then don't give in!
And so, faith's journey led that man... A Christian, born again...
Amazing grace fulfilled God's plan... it happened, there and then...
Tell me, today, are you like him? With helmet, shield and sword?
Are you making progress, pilgrim? A soldier of the Lord...
If not, then question what you are... has Jesus made you whole?
You may not be a rising star... yet God gave you a role...
A ministry... a gift or two... a vision or a dream...
A prophecy just meant for you... if you're part of God's team...
A million pounds might seem quite nice... yet revelation shows...
God seeks to grant you Paradise... where olive oil flows...
And true love fills you to the brim... beyond all hopes you've thought...
Are you making progress, pilgrim? Please share your praise report!

God! How I love Whitman! ! ! He made himself a poet for and of the common man. I have always envisioned Whitman as this very noble, dignified, yet exuberant, sort of man that clearly loved America, the joy of adventure, and had such a lust for Life w/out Hemingway's overly masculine tone. This is a great poem to me because he has also displayed his passion to be the voice of the kind of people, that in his day and age, had no such respect. Thanks for letting me share, Joyce
