A Prayer (pt.2) the Soilder


Dear Heavenly Father
As the sun sets I come out for
our nightly talk
To discuss the decisions I shall make
in the streets that I stalk
I am far from a bad guy-gangsta
And in lacking this characteristic
I would like to thank ya
But in this game of survival
the actions that I will fulfill
will be the most vile
Please do guide me just
so that my spirit will continue
to grow bright
Strong I may be
But I am but a soldier
And with your help may I become
your streadfast boulder

In Jesus name I shall forever pray....Amen

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
