My First Time

I remember when I rode my first bicycle
for the first time,
and I fell down for the first time,
and was being laughed at for the first time,
and was abashed the first time
Yea, I hate first times!
I'm shore Justin Bieber had a first time
even Usher, or Trey songz or The Black-eyed peas
or Donnie McClukin, or Kirk Franklin, or Micheal W Smith
I'm shore these weren't fun times!
I remember the first time I tied my shoe laces,
and tripped and almost landed on my face
I remember the first time I had alcohol
and the first time I smoked
and the first I choked and gasped for breath
I remember the first time I was arrested
and the first time I was sent to prison
the first time I prayed to death
'cause my heart was upset...
for the first time.
I can recall the first time I came to church
and everyone were staring at me
as though they were seeing me for the first time
and i remember the first time i sinned after i was born again
the first time my dreams were torturous
and the first time...
when I was just being obnoxious
the first time I looked someone in their eyes and said... i_love_ you
and was just ignored
but i also remember when jesus spoke to me and said
come, come to me my beloved son
for the first time.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
