Soliloquy by Magna
This poem is a Soliloquy by Magna, a Christian girl who gave up a man of the world for Jesus' sake. This was written in 1941 and sent to G. W. Elliott. We don't hear so often any more of a Christian giving up a man of the world - and choosing rather, to follow the Lord Jesus.
Tonight as I'm writing this letter,
It was useless, I know, from the start;
Your letter completed the circle,
Now I am sad and heart-broken,
For what is there left for a fool like me?
Perhaps the Lord will some day unite
But still, while I'm waiting for time to creep,
Sometimes I feel that I threw away
But still I know that I've done the right,
ED: Soliloquy by Magna seems to be a good choice for this poem, as Magna's thoughts seem to wander from one stanza to another. In the first stanza she appears to be writing to the young man she is giving up, some some of the stanzas sound like a prayer to God, some are thinking it over stanzas, and the last few are addressed again to the young man. Her decision is made but her thoughts do swirl about. This will be true for just about anyone who makes a big life-direction decision.
