Accept Mine Too Poem by Abekah Emmanuel

Accept Mine Too

Rating: 4.8

Accept mine too Oh God!
Though I know it is not enough,
For this is all
that my praise-filled mouth
and my sinful pen can offer
that no mortal can ever clean.

Many prophet have your name testified,
Many hymnists to your name sung,
While many famous poets,
With their mellifluous rhymes
And heartbreaking beats,
Have composed sweet sonnets for you.

But me, so distant from you,
Voice, as sweet as to annoy you,
And my pen, sinful as my self,
Have nothing, but this short piece
which contains my heart and soul.

And so Lord,
Accept mine too,
Though I know it is not enough.

this is a new word for me: mel·lif·lu·ous m?'liflo?o?s/ adjective adjective: mellifluous (of a voice or words) sweet or musical; pleasant to hear. the voice was mellifluous and smooth synonyms: sweet-sounding, dulcet, honeyed, mellow, soft, liquid, silvery, soothing, rich, smooth, euphonious, harmonious, tuneful, musical mellifluous dinner music antonyms: cacophonous _____________________ that no mortal can ever clean....................i don't know what you are saying here. does your poem need cleaning? seriously; what do you mean? - - - - - - - - - - Many prophet have your name testified, Many hymnists to your name sung, While many famous poets, be consistent i would think you should write prophets. otherwise you could write Many a prophet, Many a hymnist, and... many a famous poet. - - - - - - - - - - - - - my wife is annoyed, often, by my voice, but it is NOT because it is sweet. it is because it is LOUD. thanks for sharing. :) bri

Nice. The words in it are pretty cool and off the wall but dont make the poem to formal which is a plus because formal poems are harder to identify.

God who reads our hearts and knows our intentions will be mighty pleased with this humble lay! Perhaps He would rate it higher than all other hymns of praise and mellifluous songs, Abekah! Enjoyed reading!

I'm not a religious man myself, but certainly respect the beliefs of others. This is a very clear, well written, message that you've obviously put a lot of thought into. Well done Abekah.
