Biography of Don Nguyen

I am a Christian who loves Jesus Christ my Lord with all my heart. I once longed to write poetry but did not have time until this May of 2013. I first enjoyed in composing them but now I found it to be burdensome; however, I am compelled to go on for one purpose only - to bring Christ to the world, to instill love for Him and among us. I always like to write down my contemplative thoughts, the dialogue with God, but not in the rigid form of poetry. To me poetry is written expression of a heart, so forgive me if my writing is so free of poetic rules.

The feelings are mine; the expressive words are His.

Thank you for reading. You are all in my prayers daily.

God Bless,

A Tired Traveler

The traveler rests his eyes upon the old village.
The landscape still resembles what it once was;
But his heart no longer belongs, feels as a pillage.
His desire for loving his Lord, souls now raises war
Against his tired body, his empty mind, rusty skill.
Wounded in so many battles from far distant lands,
Now he simply likes to sit under a tree, to be still.
The former dreamer has faced what harsh reality handed
The human complex traits that he barely comprehended
