A Poem for My Creater

A poem for my Creator,
just where do I begin?
Let paper be my path in life,
my feet, they be the pen.
Imperfection staggers,
with footprints dressed in sin.
Each time that I have fallen,
You have raised me up again.
At times I have walked backwards,
yet, in your heart all love abounds.
In the middle of my weeping,
You grant me higher ground.
If I could only catch a glimpse
of the hope behind your eyes.
With focus placed on trash as me,
that even I should gain life’s prize.
If my poem unfinished be
while in this earth I rest,
I pray my words will rhyme in that
I’ve given you my best.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
