What is to come

After Romans 8:12-25

What we have now
cannot be compared
to what is to come.
From its deepest soul,
creation groans
in anticipation
of what will be.
Creation aches 
to be set free
from its bondage
to the darkness,
to the corruption
to enslavement.
The groans are those
of childbirth, intense,
increasing in power
and frequency, a wave
heralding what
is to come.
