We Will Survive - Poem by Melvina Germain

A country as rich as ours,
must stand guard as we pray.
For there are those who would love,
to take that freedom away.
God must always be in our midst,
each and every day,
in each and every way.

Suppression sometimes stands in the way.
Depression slows down the coming of a new day.
Oppression will never be our saving grace.
So we must concentrate on God’s precious race.

Living with fear is near,
for we know not what to expect.
God is truth and grace,
for he will take care of the human race.
If we keep Him first in our lives,
we are certain to survive.

    I bet Gloria Gaynor would wish she had written this insightful, uplifting piece - when she had finished the more selfish approach. Grand work. t x (Report)Reply

    I love the way you present your piece, melvina. It is worth reading, because our Lord deserves our praise, and be glorified. Once again, you have continued what we were starting, to build a world of peace, thankfullness and love through our pens. (Report)Reply

    Living with fear is just daily life now and all we can do is hope for peace, at least in our own hearts and souls so that we are prepared....I hope to God for our children and their children's sake we can continue to capture these demented terrorists....They won't stop till they wipe out all of the US and apparenty England, Scotland as well, so we can't stop defending ourselves 'till they are all gone....They think we can't survive, we are doing our best to prove them wrong...This is an uplifting poem...I had no idea it was also affecting your homeland....God protect us all. ~~~marci.xo. :) (Report)Reply
