But For Your Love - Poem by Abossey Allotey

Though I went astray,
Me your love brought on track again.
Though my soul was desolate and frail
Me your love brought life to gain.
Your love is de better way.
Your love bid me brighter day;
Your love does me feel okay.
But for your love I be torn apart;
Discriminated against - dead to heart;
And the devil will my future thwart.
Your love took my sins away.
But for your love I couldn't go gay.

    Hello Abossey, I have not read all of your poems but I do love your style. You are insightful and your poems are beautifully metaphorically written if you can say that! (Report)Reply

    Yes, indeed, the Lord's love
    is like a blanket of protection
