Tom Zart Poems
' David And Goliath, Jesus & Darts Of The Devil'
DAVID AND GOLIATH
David, the shepherd, a tender of sheep
Would pray to his God before he would sleep.
One day he awoke to the roar of beasts
A bear and a lion in search of a feast.
David slew both with his knife and his hand
Though still just a boy and not yet a man.
The Lord's love for David was proven once again
When he challenged the champion of the Philistine men.
Goliath's beastly fingers and hideous toes
Made David more selective with the stones that he chose.
One for the giant, he knew he would slay
Four more for his brothers ...
Chosen By God
Life can be short and life can be long
Others seem to love us as we’re sorry we're wrong.
Our world has its givers and too many that take
War, hate, greediness, evil and heartbreak.
All through our future, the peasant and the past
Humans seek passion and love that will last.
There’s no guarantee they’ll be a tomorrow
As we overcome loss, pain, hate and sorrow.
