Yes I Am A Christian, Does That Bother You?


My words they come
As I want them to
They may cut some
Does that bother you?

I write my thoughts
My own convictions
Whether they are sought
Not my restriction.

You have your freedom
Well so do I!
My faith consumes
That is no lie.

Yes I'm a Christian
Write most of God,
Share Truth to man
That makes me glad.

I write of Love too
It's part of life,
What all men do-
War, pain, and strife.

Don't try to put me
In your own mold
You let me be
My pen, don't hold.

My Christian words
Just let them fall
This is my Sword-
Don't make the call.

My pen construe
I am a Christian-
I have rights too
Like other humans.






'The Lord will keep you from all harm
He will watch over your coming and you going
both now and forevermore.'

Psalm 121: 7-8

    We are who and what we are. We're not told to hide our light under a bushel, but to share it. This is a powerful and expressive write. . tfs (Report) Reply

    No, it doesn't bother me,
    My heart is Love and my
    soul is freee;
    I leave those alone who
    want to BE,
    Once WE were blind,
    But NOW We see.

    Love your thoughts Cynthia...and BTW, thanks for your kind comments on my poems...Dave Lessard. (Report) Reply

    keep on writing about God. The devil is not happy what you did, that's why the devil is using other person to oppress you. (Report) Reply

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
