Alexander Coppedge

(June 25,1954 / Warrenton, North Carolina)


God created inside me my inspiration
God targeted aim for my life, I know
God gave guidance to combat the darkness
Keys holding eternal fate to show 
God from dust molded by hand, me like Him
The Royal image of, Himself
Placed within the earth to bear witness
To grow and learn of the ways it has
God watched my situation and torment
To test and prove, my willingness to serve
Trails of fears, with conflicts, and tribulations
Suffering and afflictions to value my worth
God molded me by hand from dust, as Him
In the Noble likeness of, Himself
My end or exchange placing my body in the ground
Where is that breath?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

My lute awake! perform the last
Labour that thou and I shall waste,
And end that I have now begun;
For when this song is sung and past,
My lute be still, for I have done.
