All I need is God


I looked for a need but I failed to find it…
A reason to neither cry my tears nor show my fears,
Throughout the years, never reached the limit
In me, greater is he that cannot be seen with eyes!

But I failed to fly even though I had wings,
Couldn’t take that one step before I could climb the skies,
I had the crown but I couldn’t live like kings
Thus I had to be a servant and watch my kingdom as it dies.

And when a man sent from above told me
“Is love from grace”, I got to the race and picked up the pace
And my eyes were opened to see
He is not too far in heaven but I have my self to trace

When I said it; I never meant it. From doing, it became proof
And this world will never rain on me anymore, I’m under His roof!

Poem of the Day

Adam Scrivener, if ever it thee befall
Boece or Troilus for to write anew,
Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
