Backslidden

Rating: 5.0

As you walk with God in your life, you display the character of Christ.
As you walk away from The Lord, your fruit displayed is not ignored,
When a one becomes backslidden, the spirit inside is not that hidden.
A believer begins wrestling deep inside, when his Lord he has denied.

As you walk from His narrow path, you fill up with bitterness and wrath.
As a spirit of anger builds up inside, The Lord’s peace to you is denied.
And the anger begins to stir within, leading your heart and mind to sin.
Then as this anger turns into rage, sound reason begins to disengage.

When from Christ you do depart, His Light begins to leave your heart.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

A rather wonderful piece of work, but I have to disagree with you, Poetry Hound, I think it should read 'oneself'.

Hi Bob. I think the poem would work better if you changed 'You' to 'I' throughout the poem so that you talk about yourself. Otherwise it looks like you presume to understand other people, which you clearly do not.
