Isn't It Great?

Isn't it great, to be alive, and have a friend,
Someone special and on them you can depend;
I have that special some one, cares about me,
It's my Jesus, My Lord and Master, He'll love you too, you'll see.

Isn't it good to be here, in the face of adversity?
When we are facing danger, we can have victory,
Life sometimes brings turmoil, but soon comes peace,
God helps us thru to the end, and we have release.

Isn't it great, when we are left on our own, yet we can cope,
Because there is God helping us, giving us hope;
I know sometimes things will seem so very dark,
But in the end, our hearts will sing like a lark.
Isn't it good, we can see what is right,
And fight the wrongs, with all our might;
We can choose, to hurt, for what we went through,
But! God will put things right, and make anew.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

As I have seen in these days of anger and people taking life from others this is why I wrote, I too have been through so much adversity, not as bad as others blown up or injured but explosions or suicide bombers, but to have an abusive marriage is why I wrote it

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
