Written Words Work Wonders - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion

Countless lives have been rearranged
By the power of written words;
For the better many people change,
While the others from bad to worse.

Millions of books have been printed
By authors, editors, and publishers;
These precious pages are widely studied
By students, mentors and researchers.

There are books about ideology,
Religion, law, and critical thinking;
One page can twist man's philosophy,
Even a slave may turn into a king.

Computer wizards around the world
Introduce the wonders of internet;
Updated information they upload
May be copied and pasted to a booklet.

Grandmasters win the chess game,
For they scan every available strategy;
Triumphs toward fortune and fame
Inspire them to enhance their ability.

From college down to elementary,
Written words of wisdom cure schism;
From general psychology to history,
From physical science to journalism.

Books on music, marriage, counseling,
Bibliotherapy, short stories, poetry;
Superheroes, wars, engineering,
Medicine, sports, economics, IT.

But above these books is the Bible,
For God, our Father, is the Author;
The Scripture offers life eternal
From the one true God, our Creator.

Topic(s) of this poem: life, bible

    And if only the world focused on the inherent good in the Bible and other holy books! ! ! Instead, many have twisted them into inherent evil. The work of the devil! (Report) Reply

    Your observation is absolutely correct... The work of the devil is exposed in my EMERGE VICTORIOUS which was published in the August 2012 issue of the Pasugo or God's Message magazine of the Iglesia Ni Cristo or Church Of Christ. Thanks, Richard...
