I Devote My Life To God - Poem by Emma Martinez

I devote my life to almighty father God,
Jesus is my saving rod. Faithfully I live
my life first for him, not to fleshly whim!!
Since my rebirth - my salvation - peace
of soul - celebration !! Twenty four years
of spiritual growth - Father, Son, Holy Ghost!
No! My life will never be the same saintly
fame, is what I found, love of Christ all
abound! This fleshly life is but a flicker
of time. Although at times pain, tribulation
and strife, shouts of jubilation. I will not rot,
I will not flee, nor be stung by venomous
bees! Father time chimes to and fro -
carnal saints in a row! Jesus will come
to take me home.
