God's Youngest Explorer - Poem by ArmourQuill Hunter

Quite early in life, I was determined to ruin Satan's day.
With a few kids gathered around me, I rigorously dug away.
'He's down here and, by God's help, I'll find him for sure.'
They believed every word, but I was only four 'with my cure.'

'He's the one causing all the pain in my family and the world.'
'If it's the-last-thing-I-do I'll find him, ' I told the girls.
We tired yet my zeal was strong; I think I focused them to live.
Imagination transported me places, but all I wanted was to give.

Never did I know my sickly mom; so I grew up on the streets.
Neighbourhood kids followed me everywhere; 'that was sweet.'
Roy Rogers's nephew was my best friend at the age of twelve.
I put on plays, filmed movies, made sand castles and elves.

How I admired my Pastor Grandma, she told gospel tales best.
The Holy Spirit hugged me at four, I felt loved and blessed.
I was an explorer climbing hills- and creating things to do.
The kids and I made cardboard sleds; down the hills we flew.

Bored, once I talked a friend into asking others for materials.
I didn't like dolls but I loved to create outfits with frills.
Exuberant zeal came easily, I-did-it-all and felt 10-feet tall.
A silly commercial, of kids flying, convinced me I'd never fall.

Looking back now, guess you could say I haven't changed my game.
Still exploring, creating, climb mountains, and sharing the same.
Life's been one exploring expedition, internationally, at a time.
I still find ways to defeat the Devil, with God's Spirit divine.

    I think that your poem elucidates many things about your personality, which is always interesting, is it not? Your zeal to defeat the devil is very heroic and beautiful, and yet, .. have you lost it? It seems you look back with a different perspective. Keep exploring the corners of the world, and loving and allowing God to love you just how you are... May you keep living life purposefully... Even though people do not always surround you as they once did.
    Thanks for publishing your poems. :) Keep writing.
