Appointed Time (Stay Your Place)

by | Mar 20, 2013 | 7 comments

Stay your place
Young king.
You aren’t ready yet.
First, you must be learned
Of the ways of the kingdom.
Then, you must grow and flourish
Under the wise presence
Of tutelage and scholarship.

Stay your place
Young king.
Yes, the kingdom does belong to you.
The whole of it–
The good and the evil,
The simple and the wiles,
The rich and the poor–
All of it belongs to you.

Your inheritance,
Young king,
Has been commanded
Even before your birth.
Your royal blood, young king,
Fought for and proclaimed the crown
That would sit atop your head even
Before you were thought of
In this land and
Known only by your Creator.

So, young king,
We know who you are.
We know where you come from.
We understand your lineage.
We know that the throne must be your resting place,
But Time declares that you
Must be trained,
And the process cannot be forsaken.

Stay your place young king
Lest the kingdom fall, be rent in two,
And given into the hands of thieves.
Stay your place young king.
Stay your place
Until the perfection of the appointed time.
