  1. poetry

    here are a few of my poems..
     
  2. no matter

    no matter what you feel
    no matter what you do
    no matter what you see
    no matter where you go
    never will there be a mile
    nor will there be a moment
    where Christ is not there
    with love that overcomes
     
  3. but Christ

    the world may laugh
    the world may scorn
    the world may turn away
    while your heart is being torn

    but Christ will stay
    to wipe your tears,
    heal your hurts,
    your scrapes, your bruises
    and show you love
    that knows no end
     
  4. a God come

    soft hands caress calloused feet
    with this you are cleansed

    a gift - a service
    a God - a Lord
    a Commander - a King
    come to wash the dirt away

    weary hands carry a heavy cross
    with this you are cleansed

    a gift - a service
    a God - a Lord
    a Commander - a King
    come to wash the dirt away
     
  5. I saw a man

    I saw a man the other day
    pass him by and turn away
    saw his need and left without
    saw his want and left without

    I saw a man the other day
    brag of his merciful way
    saw his lack and spoke of grace
    saw his end and spoke of grace
     
  6. Disagreeable Leech

    slipping into the Body
    a carnivorous leech
    draining the life
    from us

    slight scratches on the skin
    become a venomous
    tool of division
    divided by the holy

    you disagree with me
    I disagree with you
    now you have become
    the enemy

    theological discussion
    turns to debate
    turns to hate
    turns to war
     

  7. Dear Slave ..... I love this one the most. Thanks for posting these. You have a very creative mind and a heart for Jesus.
     
  8. I have always gotten positive responses from my poetry.. I have written over 1200 in my life.. but I got rid of a lot of them.. edited some of them.. have about 200 or so now... one of my "unfinished projects" to get them all edited and typed in.
     
  9. then there's my depressive period:

    crucifix
    march 2, 1999

    you empty my heart
    with your words of hate
    and bury the depths of me
    with their weight
    leave me sprawling and
    convulsing in my cage
    impaled upon the crucifix
    of your rage
     
  10. broken in spirit
    October 30, 1999

    scars of a battle raged
    within the confines
    of a weak mind.

    and I'm torn in heartache,
    broken in spirit.

    wounds once again opened
    to feel the salt
    of my stupidity
    and their relentless attack.

    and I see the stare of death,
    hesitant but willing...

    needing that one defining moment
    and that one last breath...

  15. that's a pic of my fiance and I.

    living water

    vengeance boils
    wrath deserved
    in thoughts thrown
    with intentions of
    physical harm

    how dare he hurt me

    fire in my soul
    cup of retribution
    pouring my anger
    scouring from my eyes

    how dare he hurt me

    silent prayers come
    spitting from my heart
    living water
    has quenched my thirst
    for revenge
     
  16. excuses

    we search for excuses
    to sin
    while we watch our future
    grow dim
    haunting pictures in a frame
    broken
    as the death angel
    sneaks in

    consequences not of wrong
    actions
    but of no actions at all
     
  17. but I don't write much anymore..
     
  18. cause I have other things to do.
     
  19. All praises be lifted
    to the Lord God Almighty
    for His mercy endures forever
    Who did not spare
    His only begotten Son
    for His mercy endures forever
    but gave Him up to
    face the ultimate punishment
    for His mercy endures forever
    the very wrath of God at sin
    poured upon an Unblemished Lamb
    for His mercy endures forever
    to offer you forgiveness
    and access to His throne room
    for His mercy endures forever


    All glory and honor
    power and thanksgiving
    for His mercy endures forever
    to the King of kings
    the Lord of lords
    for His mercy endures forever
    Who opens His hand to the poor
    His heart to the lonely
    for His mercy endures forever
    Who uplifts the humble
    casts down the proud
    for His mercy endures forever
    Who declares righteous those who
    believe and trust in Him
    for His mercy endures forever


    may our mind be consumed in thoughts
    of only Your love and grace, Lord
    for Your mercy endures forever
    may our lives reflect the wonder
    of Your powerful works
    for Your mercy endures forever
    purify us, make us holy and righteous
    strengthen us to run the race
    for Your mercy endures forever
