When I Close My Eyes - Poem by Roxanne Dubarry

When I close my eyes,
(I am no less wise)
I weare no disguise.
I hide my pain deep inside.
Does nobody care,
(about the pain I cannot share)
My burdons are much to great to bear.

Who do I know,
(What can they show?)
Since I have been born anew,
(Who has always come to my rescue?)
I lay my burdons down
(at the feet of Jesus Christ.)

Jesus Christ
(is the source
of my eternal life)
Someday he will rule
the whole wide world.
There will be peace
(for all the boys and girls)

Why does every body want
(to rule the world.)
Do not they know
(this old world
will pass away someday soon)

But my special friends
(do not ask me when
because I just do not
know the answer.)

Love in Christ Jesus!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I felt I had to share how I layed my burdons down;
and to share my core beliefs that there is a better
world coming tomorrow ruled by Jesus Christ.
